The ladies’s 200m last is tonight.

Final evening, on the Runnerspace Media desk, I used to be requested if Allyson could make the group? Positive she will be able to! However this can be a massively aggressive race tonight and will probably be a tricky one for any within the subject!

Keep tuned.

Thanks Bryan Sutton of SOJC Observe Bureau !

“What I’ve realized from coming right here is my expectations for myself have simply gotten even increased,” Thomas stated. “Now after I step on the monitor, I anticipate to run sub-22, which is one thing I really like for myself and I am actually enthusiastic about.”

She wasn’t the one quick qualifier. Jenna Prandini gained her semifinal warmth in a personal-best 21.99 seconds, making her the second-fastest girl on the planet this yr behind Thomas.

“It has been a very long time coming,” Prandini stated. “I have been operating occasions for a pair years now that my coach has been saying I can run actually quick. I simply needed to put it collectively in a race. So to have the ability to be having it line up on the trials is basically thrilling.”

Allyson Felix certified third total in 22.20, ending second within the first warmth. She enters the ladies’s 200 meter finals having already secured a spot on the U.S. group after her second-place end within the ladies’s 400 meters final weekend.
