Assuming she qualifies (for Guyana), if she makes the semis, it'll be another opportunity for her to go 51.xx or faster, despite the fact that she has yet to break 53.00 (she ran 53.28 at this past weekend's USATF Club Champs).
She ran 51.32 today, winning the 400 at the CAC Championships.
If she cuts another 3-4 seconds off, she might challenge Cain for HS AOY
Is the WJR (49.42) good enough? Maybe she makes it to the Moscow final and gets a good lane; and while Big O. is running everyone down on the homestretch (possibly to chase the U.K. NR, also 49.42, long overdue for her to break), Kadecia runs her down and wins the damn thing, yes?
[Yeah, I know; fat chance it may be, though my implication, without the imagination, is that Ohuruogu will win, and it will take a NR to do it.]
I hope she's running the 200 at the CAC. Me still thinks she has to drop a 22.xx (not entirely impossible, given her 22.7 indoor relay split), to go with a 49.xx and a Moscow medal to make things dicey for Mary. A medal for Mary in Moscow, and that door is slammed shut.
The other negative for Kadecia: No CAC MR (50.63, Ana Quirot) to start that ball rolling even faster, and even if she runs 22.xx, I don't think she can get Grace Jackson's MR of 22.36.
When do classes start at Nebraska? She has until then to at least crack Sanya's 400 HSR, to challenge Kendell Williams, who I think is now sitting at #2 on the girls' list, unless she herself is being challenged by Wesley Frazier.
