  1. Well from Seville drop out, the 4×100 doubtful to even make the final. I wonder the JAAA has been keeping tabs on Cristopher Taylor. Is he injured? The 4x100m ladies might be in with a chance for a minor medal. The strongest team is the 4×400 women and maybe the shuttle relay mixed can do something though not the strongest team that could be assembled. They did say they picked from who made themselves available.

    • Urel Sawyers Your assuming every other country will send their best. Its unlikely given the circumstances. The teams are all fine but I dont see many of them being able to beat the USA. Taylor is not injured.

      • Lexx Gayle I am assuming nothing. Just going off the current form that I am seeing relative to what I am accustomed to. I mentioned Taylor because I saw him running indoors and he didn’t look bad at all. Maybe he didn’t make himself available like several other athletes.
