Not sure I get your exact drift.
To my mind, the hurdles is incredibly technical. While not a hurdles expert, I have run them, but I wouldn't say that I could critique a hurdles performance from a technical perspective.
All I know is perfection when I see it, and that was Pearson last year.
Foster-Hylton's form looked pretty damn good to me--could it not be her technical quality that got her the time? I know how it looks...how SHE looks...but IMHO women can go at a pretty high level for a pretty long time if they really make an effort. 37 is IMHO not too old for a well-trained and injury-free woman to be turning in PR-type performances in a technical event.
I'm not any sort of apologist for the JAAA Skunk Works, but in this case, it might actually be training, ability, and execution. We'll see what the rest of the season brings.
Women's hurdles might be the dirtiest event in T&F.
RELEASE THE BEAST
I think Brigette is close to 40 year old and to the best of my knowledge she been taken off the active competitor list several times, basically disappears for a year and then comes back better than before. Brigette is from the Gail Devers era, Brigette is now in the type of shape she was in over a decade ago.
I generally don't get into the accussations about JA athletes becasue I think an athlete like Bolt is just freak of nature, but when it comes to Melaine Walker, Shelly-Ann Fraser and Brigette and a few others, I am very suspicious.
