  1. Can’t believe none of you Americans have even mentioned 23 year old WORLD CHAMPION Asher-Smith. But then again, America is all that exists in America…

    • As a fellow Jamaican I am forced to say that if this Bahamian girl focuses on the 100 & 200… she will surely dominate. Neither Shellyan nor Thompson can touch her. Real talk.

      • Yes as i T&F fan i love Price but Uibo is rounding into a youger version of Price with 3 options 100 200 &400

    • Garnet Thompson or you could just say you don’t think she is doping. Her PB dropped dramatically 100 is not her event. Doping is also a hot issue right now with bans left right and centre. You could say there are other things that could explain this. And then as two sports fans we could have had a nice conversation. But you immediately went for a personal and very abbrassive statement. What you put out into the world comes back to you. Why are you like this? Sending hugs if it will help.

    • Garnet Thompson I understand I feel protective of my east african athletes as well. Shows you are a true fan and patriot. Many athletes are dropping massive PBs. Other reasons could be the new shoes as in carbon plates or they are very well rested due to covid. Anyway wish you all the best as finally season is back on. Will now cheer for bahamas in the sprints.

    • Anne Masika actually when Miller-Ubo started her athletics career as a teen her specialty was the 100m and 200m. She is a very versatile athlete as she is also very good at high jump and long jump. She competed in a high jump competition as recently as last year.

    • Anne Masika I understand. Better training is a possibility. But remember even tho she does not run the 100 she still does speed training. But lets see what happens moving forward.

    • Anne Masika Miller-Uibo has ran 48 for 400m and 21.7 for 200m 100m is easy for her if she continues she will rock all 3 events, she’s a real talent from carifta days. Study the sports some more #TeamJamaica #teamCaribbean

    • Trevon Salmon no just make your case. Sports is for everyone even those who have not “studied the sport some more”. See above positive and educative comments. #gettingridofsocialmedianegativity.

    • Wayne G Beckford it was 11.19 in 100m thats an impressive drop. My second differential is well rested muscles and relaxation post covid. If someone could do a study on this then we could argue that modern athletic seasons are too punishing for our athletes. Bolt for example competef very frugally. Should we rest our athletes more?

    • Trevon Salmon doping is a possibility it is not a negative comment. It is something we need to discuss in the sports world. The number of bans has increased by 33% in the last 4 months. Athletes who are droping great times are receiving whereabouts sanctions. So its a great conversational point.

    • Wayne G Beckford race time predictor scores weighted for age previous perfomance put this as a 30% improvement in 100m. She has done well. This is not a small thing.

    • Anne. You’d have a point if Miller Uibo had run 11.19 peak season last year. This personal best dates back THREE YEARS. Is it not conceivable to attribute her gains to increase in strength level, technique improvement, increased range of motion than to invoke doping?

    • Anne Masika . 10.98 is an improvement but don’t look for her to run the 100m or continue beat sone of of the 100m ladies who were in the race and are just about 80% ready or less. SMU almost never stop training and is always ahead. I cant wait to see what she has for the 200m and the 400m and wish the Bahamas had 3 more decent 400m runners for a 4 x 400 team.
