I don’t know if it qualifies as short to long or not as Carpenter’s talking about maintaining 200m strength, but there seems to have been a lot of attention paid to her start early in the season…and that seems to be a more and more common theme around the world right now.
You could also put it this way… A lot of folks felt that SAF needed her bullet start to run fast. 10.82 without the bullet start is pretty good. You can see she’s working on something, just like Asafa.
Lol I love predictions no one knows what these girls are going to run unless you are training them and then things obviously need to fall into place. I am not sure we can say these girls can run 10.6 this year and not 10.5 the difference could simply be a little bit of extra wind. I mean who thought last year we would see Carmelita Jeter run 10.6+ twice completing bypassing the 70’s. Its a shame about the boys but less face it they ar emoving into uncharted waters and no one yet really knows what kind of demands these speeds place on the body…or maybe we are finding out.
