Not there yet, but if there were 4 rounds in the Olympics things could start to get interesting.
(Pity there are -- I assume -- only 3.)
Yes. I think she's faster now than she had been since 2009, and over half a second faster now than
she was at this stage that year.
Similarly faster than this stage in 2008.
Based on her progress through to August in 2009 she would be in PB shape by August 2012.
Based on her 2008 trajectory, she would be in British record shape by August...
Meaningless I know. But I live to dream.
Which is precisely why I've been banging on about drafting in Ennis.
My final line-up would be:
...and hope that Ennis's 200 speed can help carry her to a low 51 (or better) opening leg. I'd have her on leg one so that she has athletes she can feed off, and will also hand over to (whoever) in a lane.
Its my honest opinion this gives us our only shot at a medal assuming no mishaps to the big guns. Its going to be no good having Maz, Nicola or Shana running a 52 first leg. Depending how Lee holds up, I might put her on 2nd instead of Eilidh.

Kermit nobody is disputing Jess is an ace hurdler ,and silver and bronze are up for grabs, though im not sure she can go sub 12:65 which it will take.But she has said she will only take her place if she needs to.
In the relay, which she has never mentioned, she is faster over 200 and has more endurance stamina tahn any of the potential girls to fill up he tea after PSD, Big O and Lee.
