I thought she already was pro. Hasn't she been racing in Nike all summer.
She faster than Mclaughlin. Should get a big payday.
I know it's not as easy since she's a 200/400 runner and not a 400h runner like Syney M but if I was her I wouldn't go pro unless the money was HUGE. Next year, she could really set the NCAA on fire in the 200/400 and get even more money from the company's that miss out on Sydney M.
She was interviewed by Flotrack last week. She said she's still debating on whether or not to go back to NCAA competition this year and will decide sometime in the next few weeks. Regardless, this is the last race for her 2018 season before taking "at least a month" break. She's already raced over 42 times this year.
Personally, I don't think it would be wise for her to go pro now. I don't think she has the consistency needed to be competitive on the pro circuit right now. I'm amazed she qualified for the DL final, but I guess a lot of the competition took the year off since there aren't any major championships this year. She should enjoy the rest of her collegiate career, even if Harvard doesn't necessarily provide the best accommodations for an elite sprinter (which she ranted about at one point on Twitter before deleting it).
Also, I think she should just focus on the 200m, only dabbling in the 60m/100m or 400m for training purposes. The 60m/100m can help her work on her start as she's just all end speed, and the 400m can help with endurance. I don't think it would be wise for her to go after the 200/400 double at NCAAs with 2019 being a World Championships year. The USA has plenty of talent across all of the sprints, but I think her best chance at making Team USA would be in the 200m (and maybe as an alternate for the 4x400). I hope Harvard doesn't keep putting her into the LJ or TJ for team points at Heps and try to keep her race count down. They have plenty of sprinting and jumping depth (especially with their incoming freshman class this year).
