    2 Swiss athletes and only 1 American in the final!

    ​​​​​​Also, Daryll Neita. Well done!

    Daryll just squeaks in ahead of Ahye as the second fast loser, with her second fastest time ever.

    Who would have predicted two Swiss women in the final, and only one American and one Brit?

    Neita beats Ahye on thousandths - karma?

    I know this is a bit late - but in the medley relay 4 x 400 = if you are in the men's or women 4 x 400 does that exclude you from the medley???

    Wow, the final may see a 10.6 or quicker - the women are doing something different this year - well the Nigerian definitely was!!! It seems like a fast track and no wind!

    @SprintRelayFan

    I made the same point and got dismissed similarly. She has had injuries all year, poor girl.

    @Trevorp

    Rusty but also clearlt not fully fit 100%, no point beating around the bush

    If she carries this form (more accurately, lack of) through the week, hurts our chances for anything like a reasonable medal haul on the track, you have to think. Not just both her individual event but also the relay.

    Yes I didn’t think she was particularly easy in the heats - not if you compare to the Jamaicans. Also worth saying that phillipo was rounded on for saying she wasn’t racing enough…

    According to Denise Lewis she's just race-rusty. Give me strength.

    The way her form fell apart was worrying, yeah. I'm really disappointed for her - Clear as day her prep has been interrupted and she's coming in cold. She'll need a miraculous turnaround, and I hope she gets it.

    She really tied up 40m from line, where she normally looks so strong. This would be so tragic for her as puts her 200m at risk also.
Working...
