  1. Some of you people are silly. She won easily in her first 200m season opener of the year at a low key meet. Her performance was better than what we saw from Thompson-Herah and Jackson last week. She did what needed to be done.

    • I still believe Thompson should be groomed for the 200m. Her longlivity is stronger than Shelly Ann Frazier Pryce.. Remember she’s the Olympic Champion for the 200m and she did it at 21 .66at World Championships in 2015.

  2. Ummm not sure that would be considered a ‘competitive’ field. Anthonique Straun? Sashalee Forbes? Meh
