Mu's magical 2021 continued as she ran a Trials record and US #2 time of 1:56.07 thanks to an incredible 28.49 final 200. Behind her, Raevyn Rogers and Ajee Wilson came from way back to grab their tickets to Tokyo in a super competitive race where 5 of the top 6 ran lifetime bests.
The fastest two Americans in history Evan Jager and Stanley Kebenei have both scratched and Andy Bayer (#7 all time) is retired. That leaves Diamond League Hillary Bor as the favorite, but there is certainly space for the likes of Isaac Updike and Mason Ferlic who have both beaten Bor this year or newcomer Sean McGorty to make their first US team. And Benard Keter just beat McGorty.
