  1. Base on what I saw on the weekend, ET is going to hard to beat … ET looked far better than Shelly in the 100m.
    Elaine Thompson-Herah would win any head-to-heard clash between she and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce right now.

  2. Judaine Bailey I hope so… she just hasn’t shown much promise over the past like 3 years… and even when she won in London 2017 which was her last big win over a B+ class field… it was 22+… I really hope she finds her top form because she is exciting to watch.

  3. Heh!!! Unu Faat…. hamstring fayva saat out…. Elaine a come defend are title dem well well hard… it a go tight between she, Shelly and Shaunae (200)… plus if Sha’carri stay on her game she definitely will be in the mix… and don’t forget Tori… she will have had more than enough time to heal… wooy!!! It a go bad…
