Fraser-Pryce is an unbelievable athlete. Wow! That was a final🥇
Sean Lewis Totally agree with you.
She blew away the field.
The lineups at the end of the story say differently from the headline…one is in Semi 1 and the other in Semi 2.🤔
There is a certain way these semi finals are decided but these are experienced stars who knows how to compete for qualification while reserving the energy for the finals.
Odion Statistician Grant JP are u seeing Elaine taking the double? She looks great
Samoi Franklyn could but Shericka with how she looks at 100m could be fast on the 200m
How did that happen doesn’t really matter but it could hurt the other runner base on place and times for the final
Michael Andre Hill IAAF rules based on number of events and the times that each person ran. The person with the best time is actually Shericka Jackson and she will face Brianna Williams which is another super clash. I think all four will play Possum and only do the minimum required to qualify for the finals.
Ras Ethiopian Phillip no one will playing possum the top 2 from each semifinal and then 2 with fastest next time go thru and want a good time so you end up in middle of the track
Michael Andre Hill OK, cool, the top 2 athletes in those two super charged semi finals are much better the the others in their races.
Ras Ethiopian Phillip hmmm maybe if Natasha and kemba are in the third semifinal that’s even better than Shericka Brianna because they have better PBs
I read the article; SFP and ETH are not listed for the same semi.
Damian Maxwell check the Jaaa website…! They are now listed…!
Albert Williams Ok, thanks!
Why do you put the two fastest times in the same semi-final? Makes no sense.
I am super nervous for them. Hoping there will be no false start! All the best ladies! Anticipating a tie!
Interesting, good luck ladies
The next semis will be a bit more challenging all the ladies vying for the third spot are lined up there…!
Mi nerves! 🙈!
