Womens 100m - 400m Olympics/Helsinki

Postby b-athletics » Fri May 04, 2012 5:25 pm

In the past few years womens sprinting has been at it's lowest, however, I do think that this year there could be a resurgence within women's sprinting. Now I was wondering who everyone though would qualify for this years Olympics and for the Europeans in Helsinki.

My Predictions

Olympics:
100m
Jeanette Kwakye
Jodie Williams
Asha Phillip

200m
Jodie Williams
Margaret Adeoye
Abi Oyepitan

400m
Christine Ohorugu
Shana Cox
Lee McConnel

Helsinki:
100m
Anyika Onhoura
Laura Turner
Montell Douglas

200m
Anyika Onhoura
Desiree Henry
Emily Diamond

400m
Nadine Okyere
Kim Wall
Kelly Masey

What are your thoughts and predictions?

b-athletics, welcome to the forum. If you look at UKA's selection policy for the Euros you'll see the situation isn't straightforward, because entries have to be in for the Euros before the Olympic Trials. So the Euros can't be used as a consolation prize. Three athletes plus two reserves can be nominated. If the top two at the trials have the Olympic A standard they'll be withdrawn from track events at the Euros. But UKA want to use the Euro 4 x 100 as a rehearsal for London. Since a relay team has to include the three athletes nominated for the individual 100, it seems possible that no one will run the individual 100 in Helsinki...
