    Into a -0.3 m/s headwind. So strong in the last 50 metres.

    • Gabby Thomas has a hamstring injury. Steiner maintained her form from NCAA to Trials, now whether she can maintain for another 3/4 weeks. Let's see what the Jamaicans do.

      Mu is beatable at Worlds. Keely should go in with that attitude (I'm sure she will)

        Have to echo this, Wilson almost had Mu there. Athing still a hot favourite, but I could see Ajee or Keely beating her.

        • Grant Holloway skipped the final (presumably as he has a wild card), but the surprise was that both Devon Allen and Trey Cunningham were beaten by Daniel Roberts.

          • Ms Loudmouth Richardson bombed out in the 200m semis.... 22.47 is a decent time, but isn't going to cut in the US Trials.

            No doubt her fans will be denying reality and saying that she's "still got this" and other such comments on social media.... lol.

              Sha'Carri needs to realise that the likes of Abby Steiner is already performing at a better standard than she ever did while being a college athlete, and not only that, has managed to carry that on into the Trials and came out on top with a fabulous time. When Richardson ran those super fast times in 2019 as a student in the NCAA Finals, just a few weeks later, she bombed out tamely in the heats of the US World Championship trials with barely a whimper.
              Understandable then you could say after the hectic collegiate schedule, but much less so this time as a 22 year old pro athlete and having run well in recent weeks and seemingly rounding into form. Gatlin (booo!) claimed she'd been running 10.3/10.4s in training just a week or so ago, so where did that swiftness go in such a short time?

              In her post-race interview after failing to get to the 200m final, she didn't mention once any injury issues that curtailed her prep, as she rambled about the media and did her best "Girl Boss" act.

              She has to stop blaming other people for her own failings and start to look inward a but more to find out what's really causing her issues right now.

              Apparently she put out a statement containing "y'all" several times and basically asking for more respect in the media.

              Somebody needs to tell her that respect is earned and not automatically given.

              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.

            Yep, that is the first time that Mu has looked vulnerable so far in her young career. Up until now she has been virtually untouchable in the races she's run, whether during her colligate days, or as a professional athlete, Mu was always usually streets ahead of her rivals by the end of races. Here though she looked like she could be gotten at, and though she still won in the end, that result is going to garner the attention of Keely and her team for sure.

            It shall be a very, very interesting women's 800m in the World Championships for sure.

                  Not just the final, the rounds will be challenging.

                That gal has been running fast since March
                Phenomenal effort.
                The performances in the Stated this w/e, in great conditions admittedly,have been little short of incredible
                WLs, PBs galore.
                Noted that Mu only won by less than half a second.
                Hats off to Champion Allison beating Ross, revenge for losing in the NCAA Champs. I an see the Americans doing a number of gold/ silver duos and I think their medal tally may well be a record.

                  Having the champs at home is obviously a big motivator.

                  We dont know whether Warholm is fully fit. Maybe its Benjamin's turn is here at home. I still think Dos Santos can surprise all.
