Christine and Beatrice are so brave and true to the sport. To do what they did after all the negative comments and negative coverage by the western media at their age is beyond exceptional. I’m still excited!!! Our girls

Mboma and Masilingi just need advance training and mentorship, then they will FLY for sure! In other words, they are the BEST considering the little exposure, lack of professional training and resources they have compared to the rest of the other athletes.

When my Namibian girl tops this finals, y’all had better put respect on her name

She broke her record in less than a day,that is worth praising.
Not to mention that she’s only 18 guys...

That is why bolt looks around, you must be aware of what the competition is doing especially when you are conserving energy. Thats why bolt was able to speed up, because he saw degrasse trying to pass him in the now famous "joking around" moment

Thompson will be hard to beat if she gets that start. She is strong at the finish plus she is on fire. Shelly will get that start but have to find the strength to hold on.

If Christine Mboma gets a good start, there is no chance for any of the athletes. Her slow start is the blessing of all other athletes. We not that she has not even really prepared for the 200 as her favorite was the 400.

I guess Sheicka being out is a blessing in disguise, now she can run the 4 x 100 heats and maybe even the 4x400.
Ripton Weir
Ripton Weir:
I have Elaine to win but it's gonna be tight for the other spots. Miller Uibo gets lane 9 which is good for her because of her height so she will run a shorter turn and that should factor in the place she finishes in
LnJ
LnJ:
As a Jamaican I'm disappointed for Shericka but also good for her. Run your race as if you want to win!
You can't win tomorrow if you don't win (qualify) today!

The greatest teacher is experience.
Hopefully she learns from it, and come back harder!

Elaine, ShellyAnn and Miller-Uibo. I think Elaine most likely will win, but Fraser-Price will also want that Gold. Miller-Uibo and Ta Lou will be fighting for 3rd.

FloTrack Podcast: Here are the facts, Shericka instructions were to 1. Run a fast 100m 2. Paste yourself for the last 100m to conserve energy for the final. But Shericka admitted that she miscalculated the executions.

I don't think Uibo medal. She doesn't have that racket start. Ta Lou is the one to watch. That curve, will determine the winner

Mboma from Namibia the silver medalist is only 18 years. Look out for her in the next two Olympics she needs to get her start together. She has an ending out of this world. I was looking at some videos of her on youtube and I realized she has the speed to be the next world and Olympic champ. I hope her country will invest in her she is phenomenal. Check her out people and show her support and love. Not because she is not an American give her props

Jamaica will be 1 and 2....Miller Ouibo will get the bronze. Shelly-ann has never gotten bronze in an individual event while healthy and this will not change in the 200 m.
Patrick Williams
Patrick Williams:
If someone has too much male harmine to run in the 400 how is this not applied to 200 and 100. I would have thought more muscle power is needed in the sprint events. I say if we are going this way, let's go all the way. We should make all the events mixed.

How do you have 2 hyper androgenous athletes not allowed to run 800 but you put them in the 200 because they are too fast? It makes no sense 🤯. You think they are going to be slower in the 200? Mboma with her lousy form is playing cat and mouse? She looks like she could be in the 20s range if she wanted. But she won't as it would draw too much attention. Sorry but this is unfair to the women with normal testosterone levels.

We want the 400m medals too... `Go test our girls' families genes and other athletes' and their families' genes too, You will be surprised that our girls are powerful because of geographic environment and inherent generational speed. The disqualification to run 400m is shameful and maybe racist.
