Great women’s 100m final in Osaka


I just saw the WCSN broadcast of the women’s 100m final and man was that close. It looked like Lauren had won with 5m to go and then a group of athletes came storming up. I can’t recall another 100m final in Olympic or World Champs history where there were so many people so close together.

With a 2,3,4 finish and Sanya Richards AND Allyson Felix waiting in the wings, the US looks as strong as ever on the women’s short sprint scene.
