  • 2019 IAAF WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS (Doha, QAT) Day 2

    Bagged the more difficult heat in the Mixed Relay up against USA and Jamaica. Looking forward to the tactics but probably not the team announcement. Not one for traditionalists?

    Mixed 4x4 quite unpredictable as we have no idea how seriously teams will take it including GB.

      SAFP is not playing today!

      (Surely that must be one of the quickest times EVER run in the heats of a major championships yes?)

      (edit 2: Just for comparison... Flo-Jo ran 10.89 in the opening heats of the 1988 Olympic Games!)

          Now Ta Lou runs 10.85!!! (-0.3 m/s)

          Neita (in a distant 2nd place) sets a new PB of 11.12!

                Well, that blows away the worries that Ta Lou wouldn't be arriving here fit after limping over the line at the African Championships 200m final in August!

                    Asha Philp was poor there... Good start, bad middle and really poor finish.

                    As for Elaine Thompson, was that her sandbagging for the later rounds? She qualified well enough but after the opening 2 heats an 11.15 looks almost ordinary in comparison!

                      Easy 10.96 for Dina.

                        Dina means business too... Yet *another* run under 11 seconds this season... 10.96, winning easy and on to the semi-finals.

                          That was the easiest sub 11 I've seen from Dina. Drive phase was brilliant.

                            BTW, as some commenters on this forum have mentioned before, the USA female sprinting this year, outside of the NCAA class that ran super quick earlier this year, are at a particularly low ebb with English Gardner still trying to comeback from serious injury, Morolake Akinusun looking pretty ordinary, and Torie Bowie still an unknown quantity as she herself is recovering from a bad injury last year.
