    More depressing than I thought possible were the official spectator numbers for 4 days at Eugene's track and great athletics
    No day was more then 3600 ,the max for one day. We now know this years WC spectatator figures are a maximum in the Stadium of 17000.zThe Amercans promised 30K and the WA accepted it

    I think "marilyn" is referring to "tested" as in "tested for doping".

    Your enthusiasm is touching,but there is no way in this world that DAS or any current runner will beat 21.34 secs.
    DAS will have a fight to make the finals top 6.

    Our two, and I assume you mean DAS and DN, should put their main focus on the European Championships.

    And I will be super happy if we have representation in both the 100 and 200 finals. Even if they don't medal. Hopefully two in the 100.

    I wouldn't worry about Steiner. A very strong athlete who has run more than 50 races since the start of the year. US indoor 200m record earlier this year, then 21.80 at the Collegiate Championships followed by 21.80 and 21.77 at the USATFs. She can also run 10.90 at 100m and is a great 400m relay runner. If she maintains her form over the next 3 weeks, a likely silver medalist over 200m beyind Jackson.

    Mboma has a physical advantage over other athletes with her elevated testosterone.
    Is that vastly different than some of the freaks that compete in athletics, like a 6 foot 4 female triple jumper,all legs and poor technique, or a 2 metre tall and 20 stone mountainous shot putter who is an OG champion.?

    Sifan Hassan is also conspicuous by her absence this year.

    Exactly right.

    To Richardson: Amazing, you managed to run super fast as a teenager. So did a bunch of other super-talented U20s down the years, like Kaylin Whitney and a laundry list of others. A large chunk of them never did anything in the professional ranks, for a whole host of different reasons.

    Just because you set a world junior record that was comparable with times being run by senior athletes, then in your first year as a pro you ran even faster, doesn't mean you've achieved anything of note in sprinting. All you've done is run fast. Until you get some medals around your neck and have stood on the top step of an Olympic or World Championship podium, all that brash talk and bravado is all it is, talk.

    More often that not, when she has run against the world's best sprinters on an equal footing, Richardson has come off second best, even third or fourth best. And that's not exactly matching up with her own highly elevated opinion of herself.
