Was the head starter Thursday a woman?

Although the TV did not show the starter the other night, the voice sounded like a woman. Just wondering if a woman has ever been the Head Starter for a sprint/ hurdle final in any Oly Games or WC?

...hmmmm...if not in Paris, I'd dare say that given the diversity-PC thought of recent USATF official selections, we'll see it at the World Cup in Carson.

Let's hope that the best starters are selected in a totally gender-blind selection process. I don't really care whether it's a man or a woman with a gun in their hand, I want the best starter than money can....
....well, never mind :)

I believe there was a women starter in Atlanta for the womens's 100 or 100H.

Can't swear to thursday, but there has been a woman starter out there.
