The tallest listing I can see for Jackson is six feet.

that's alright, but you would be wrong because it's not what you see, it's what is. I've met them both; Jackson is taller.

6-0 is indeed what Jackson was always listed at, but having stood next to her, I'd certainly think her taller than that (not that looking down to find me is any particularly tough feat!)

It is my belief that she is only beginning to learn how to unwind that tall body; and even though she's still learning, she still ran 11.41 and 22.70 last year as well as 51.25 a few months before WJC (the 51.78 is not indicative of her ability, she was injured last year after sprinting so much). Look at her...she's not going to get much lighter than she is right now; it would make sense to use the power and strength she will develop. I am NOT saying that she is the next Bolt of the women, only that I think she can be (with a whole lotta IF's). She doesn't overstride, she has pretty good arm carriage and she is well trained (her current coach was her coach in the Bahamas before he left for UGA)...she may not be a true LONG sprinter.

I am NOT saying that she will be but I wouldn't be surprised if she's 10.7 in a few years. I see a bit of Marion Jones ability there...just taller (and for the moment not as fast). I'm thinking a stronger Grace Jackson (11.08/21.72/49.57)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3-wG6z1uB0 Bolt...notice how he doesn't overstride?

Again, not saying that she will be "Bolt" or Marion its just that she has a lot of the cues that say "short sprinter" - even though she's so tall. By the way, Sanya has many of those same cues and would be a "triple-sub" if not for the 22.09.


I said a few months back that I thought Shawnae Miller would ultimately move down to the 100 and though she hasn't yet, her improvement at 200m seems to indicate that her greater success, imo, will ultimately be with the shorter sprints. She ran 22.45 (legal?) this weekend according to the article on the front page http://www.thenassauguardian.com/index. ... -nationals
