    That would be huge. No Brit has even won 2 golds at the same World Champs.

    I don't see Okagbare in 5th, she seems to have gone slightly backwards again.

    The enigma that is Bowie still hangs over them....I very much doubt Bowie is able to run the 10.7 needed to win, there's been no indication she is in her best form this season, but can she take DAS, or is DAS reading to smash her PB? If not for her last race in Bellinzona (5th in 11.29) I was thinking Bowie was sneakily getting back to her best, but not so sure now. Still, an 11.15 and 11.09 on the same day in Madrid, over a month ago, is ominous. She is the defending champion and has medalled in the last 3 major 100s after all....

    I feel Pinto might sneak the final. Those SF line ups are going to be very interesting. This year some big names are likely to be going out.

    As mentioned elsewhere, Schippers would do well to drop this event and focus on getting the bronze in the 200m.

    But she already appears on the 100 start list. If she DNSes, she'll be excluded from running the 200 she's reportedly saving herself for.

    No British woman has ever medaled at a world championships in the 100. She'd be the first to win a world or Olympic title.

    Any medal would be only the 3rd by a British woman in either the Olympics or World Championships. Brits have won 2 silvers in the women's 100, the last being in 1960.

    That would be the usual case, but the article raises the allegation that the Nigerian federation nominated her and Oduduro for the 100m without contacting them to confirm that they wanted to run the 100.

    If true, the IAAF will then be in the position of excluding athletes in accordance with their rules, solely due to a useless federation.

    Who are they going to shaft, the athletes or the federation? Where is a Diack to "accept a solution" to solve the problem?
