You do understand that the distance from Eugene, Oregon (where NCAAs took place) to Des Moines, Iowa (where the USATF Champs took place) is FARTHER than the distance from Paris, France to Moscow, Russia? (the equivalent distance between the two American cities would be the distance from London, England to Moscow, Russia)

I think what you meant to say is, "we'll find out how well Rollins runs outside of the USA..."

I'd like to see Rolling in the 100m to test her speed. I am not expecting any Gail Devers-esque performance but it will be interesting to see just how fast she can go over the flat.

I'm going to go against the grain here and say not to expect anything too spectacular from Rollins here. Remember she's almost certainly past peak and in training mode to achieve another peak at WCs. A 12.4x close Pearson win wouldn't surprise me at this point in the season.

If Pearson starts hitting 12.4x or faster by the time she races against Rollins then I'm gonna pick Pearson for the gold.

Even if Rollins is routinely doing 12.3 and 12.2? :)

Pearson was not a dominating winner last year(she barely defeated Harper-Nelson for gold in London) If she runs in the 12.4's she may not medal, let alone beat Rollins.

Pearson for bronze(maybe) in Moscow behind Rollins and Harper-Nelson.

What I've observed over the years is that from time to time, a hurdler will enjoy a year in the stratosphere in which everyone else is relegated to racing for second place unless that hurdler makes a mistake. Aries Merritt had such a year in 2012, Pearson in 2011, David Oliver in 2010 and Lolo in 2008 (she dominated the DL circuit before and after Beijing and finished the year ranked #1). I believe that Rollins is having such a year in 2013 and Pearson and the rest of the hurdlers have to pray that Rollins either comes back down to Earth before Moscow or makes a mistake in Moscow.

I think he meant if she starts hitting 12.4 by the Monaco meet then he has her to win gold in Moscow .....but I'm not sure she will be sharp enough to run 12.4 so soon.

There's some speculation about this in the Monaco Dl 100H thread.
