Day 1 Qualifying Review:

Nothing shocking from the early round of the women’s 100m dash. As expected, Allyson Felix and Carmelita Jeter both advance on to the semi-finals with easy wins. Felix started slowly but used her vintage late surge to take the win her heat. Jeter got out of the blocks well and cruised to a sizeable victory. 2004 Olympic Silver Medalist Lauryn Williams, Bianca Knight, and NCAA champion English Gardner were amongst those advancing to the next round.

 

Carmelita Jeter is a strong favorite entering the 100m rounds at the Trials. She is the reigning world champion and has been ranked No. 1 in the world for the past 3 years. Allyson Felix has decided to compete forgo the 400m and concentrate on the 100m, 200m and relays.  Felix set a personal best in earlier this season in the shorter distance.  At the New York Grand Prix, Tianna Madison, the '05 world long jump champion, broke the 11 second barrier for the first time. Along with Tianna Madison, collegians English Gardner of Oregon, and Ashley Collier of Texas A&M have shown the speed to contend for a spot on the team.
