Our main thought2?
1) Savinova deserves to be considered the favorite. We'd say she wins this race more than 50% of the time but after her we like the Americans.
We said in our preview we don't see how Montano wins it if her third 200 is over 30. That may actually be possible but not if it's over 31 like it was in the semis.
If Martinez is going to win, she's got to get out faster.
2) We expect this to be a MUCH slower winning time than the last 3 worlds.
Winning Times at the last 5 Worlds.
PS. We figured out why all of the 800 runners think they are going way faster than they are. The big screens hanging from the stadium are on about a half-full second delay. So if you look up at those, you'll see a time from the past.
