I understand Thanou is currently injured and is unlikely to go to Paris. If she does, she'll most likley be in the form she was last year, outside 11 secs. She'd make the Paris final but that's it.
Re Block, she should have beaten Gaines in Heusden but as she reeled for the line Gaines accidentally tangled arms with her (Gaines was right over, virtually in Zhanna's lane)
I'm convinced if they hadnt had contact Block would have won in around 11.11. Into that strong wind (-1.4) it was a good run.
The final in Paris has to be between Sturrup, White, Arron and Block IMHO. The crux will be who can handle the rounds.. and their head. Block is the only one who has won a world title before, but this injury must have knocked her confidence. Arron has home crowd support..and pressure. White does peak very well (ala edmonton) but her losses this year on the circuit must have made her a little unsure. Sturrup is solid, but I'm not convinced she has a champion inside her....
