BAHAMIAN EXCELLENCE: Shaunae Miller Uibo
In the qualifying period for the 2019 Olympics, Salwa Eid Naser of Bahrain leads 48.14 from Shaunae Miller Uibo 48.37, both set on October 3 in Doha. Miller finished behind Naser at the World Championships in that event.
Shaunae Miller Uibo, however, did state she will only run the 200 meters at the Olympics due to scheduling. And will give the 400 meters a miss.
Claremont, Back to Track Series. 24.07-25.07.20
Shaunae Miller Uibo now has the world lead for 2020 in 100-200-400

The 26-year-old Miller smashed her PB from last year of 11.19. To show she is a force to be reckoned with leading into the 2020ne Olympic Games.
17-year old Tammari Davis was 2nd in 11.15, and Nattalia Whyte (Jamaica) 3rd in 11.19.
Shaunae Miller Uibo tidied it up with a double winning the 200m the following day in 21.98 (+2.0 m/s) with the maximum allowable wind conditions for a legit run. Miller-Uibo now owns the World Lead in the 100m, 200m, & 400m. and ran Miller PB of 21.74 last year at Zurich.
She finished ahead of a once more sharp hurdler, Jasmine Camacho-Quinn (Puerto Rico), who clocked a big SB of 22.45s, and Lynna Irby in 22.47s, her fastest time since 2018.
Quanera Hayes, who won another heat in 22.80s (+1.5), placed 4th overall, while Kyra Jefferson took 5th in 22.88s (+1.4).
Lyles does 100/200 Double, but Bromell is Back!!!
Trayvon Bromell made a comeback of sorts winning 100m Heat 3 in a legit 9.90 (1.4). But then opting not to compete in the final. Bromell, who took Bronze at the 2015 World Champs, had not broken 10 seconds since 2016 and at that time had a PB of 9.84.
In the Final 2019, World Champion Noah Lyles, who has a PB of 9.86, clocked a wind-aided 9.93 (+2.3), beat Andre De Grasse of Canada, the 2019 World bronze medalist in the 100m 9.97. De Grasse had run 9.97 earlier in the heats.
