(ETH) PRESUMED CHAMPIONSHIP PLAN 2023 – 2024

Rise and shine break is over. Track and Field Season – 2023 is here. Awake from your sleepless slumber. Fans of Elaine Thompson – Herah (ETH) anticipate excellent years in 2023 and 2024. Now is the time to run 10.47 for the 100M event. Pens filled with ink waiting to sign-off on Performances, confirming her return to the throne of Women sprinting. She is one of two members in the EXCLUSIVE 10.6X Club for the 100M event.

Where does ETH go from a less than perfect season in 2022? She is planning to destroy the competition in a demonstrative way. She was not ready for the 100M and 200M at WAC – 2022. The anticipated rematch between Elaine Thompson-Herah, Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce, and Shericka Jackson in the 100M Final at WAC – 2022 lacked the Neck and Neck drama. Regardless the race was competitive

Absent injuries, ETH will to be a Factor in the Women 100M and 200M events in Budapest Hungary August 19, 2023. Elaine Thompson – Herah, has work to do but nothing to be nervous about. The Spear will be burning in Budapest and will make Jamaica proud.  

Despite the Dishonoring at recent Award Celebrations, Fans believe Elaine Thompson-Herah (ETH), back-to-back 2016 and 2021 double Olympic Champion with an Olympic record in the 100M, and awarded Female Athlete of the Year in 2021, has more significant and longer lasting accomplishments. If she runs 10.47 for the 100M in Budapest or Paris, that record will last forever.

Athletes planning to be in the Women 100M Final in Budapest with a Personal Best (PB) slower than 10.7X should skip the event. Participating in the event with a PB south of 10.7X, will make you late for Dinner, where dinner is the Gold Medal. The Women’s 100M Final in Budapest 2023 is on Track for a Time of 10.61 or better.

Moving forward it will be difficult to make Jamaica Olympic Team as a member of the 100M or 4 X 100M squad. 10.6X in the Women 100M event is the formula to win. The Tail Gate Party continues.

TAKE AWAY FROM DIAMOND LEAGUE – 2022

Diamond League season – 2022 is over and in some instances “mercifully”. Clearly, some Stars did not perform at expectations or sustained injuries that affected performance. There were Stars not ready to perform well or losing Velocity. 2022 was a Year in which one competitor said, “I did not come to compete, I came to win”. Fans like that kind of confidence in an Athlete, it means she came into the Season with “Fire in the Belly”. Base on observation, Fans might have to reset expectations for Olympics 2024. While Fans are not ignoring WAC – 2023, they find the Olympics historically more significant and most likely where the Women’s 100M world record of 10.49 will be broken. I anticipate the winning time and new record to be 10.47.

Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce had a Great Season. Fans believe 2022 was the Pinnacle of her Career. However, Fans cannot imagine her running 10.54 or faster for the 100M. Fans believe Elaine Thompson-Herah (ETH), back-to-back 2016 and 2021 Olympic victories with an Olympic record in the 100M, is more significant and longer lasting.

Fans still think Elaine Thompson-Herah (ETH), can run 10.47 for the 100M. She just needs to regain focus. Shericka Jackson had a phenomenal season but until she runs a 10.47 100M and or destroy the Olympic Record of 10.61; she is not likely to be the next World Record holder in the event. Yes, we “want to” be starting something.

Where does ETH go from a less than perfect season in 2022? She was not ready for the 100M and 200M at WAC – 2022. The times required to win the featured Women events – 100M, 200M, 400M, 800M, 400M Hurdles, and 100M Hurdles were faster than recorded in the National Trials. The anticipated rematch between Elaine Thompson-Herah, Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce, and Shericka Jackson in the 100M Final at WAC – 2022 lacked the Neck and Neck drama. Regardless the race was competitive

The sweep in the Women’s 100M occurred during WAC 2022, July 15 to July 24 but many dreamt of a 1234 finish with Kemba Nelson joining the Party. Shericka Jackson made progress with her Speed but given her running style she seem incapable of getting to the 100M mark before 10.7X seconds as was demonstrated at the Jamaica National Trials and WAC 100M Final. Undoubtedly, Shericka Jackson has figured out the “formula “to win the 200M.

In the off-season Athletes will have to develop a two-year plan, 2023 – 2024. Plan should include what is working and what is not. Do more of what is working and abandon what is not. All Athletes, base on performances in 2022, should be reviewing Weight Training. Lifting weights produce power but too much weight and improper technique will jeopardize speed and in some cases cause long term or permanent damage. Sprinting requires power but a damaged shoulder or back will affect speed. An Athlete cannot win the 100M without Speed in the first 30 meters. No speed no Dinner, where dinner is the Gold Medal.

There is Excitement and Entertainment in Track and Field. Going forward in the 100M and 200M events, Stars will have no time to keep anything in Reserve, they will leave it all on the Track. Stars will let competitors listen for the Gun and watch the Feet. The moment a competitor’s feet is off Blocks, Stars will BOOGIE. Stars should remember to treat competitors with respect. The competitive conduct in Track is “Good morning”, “Good afternoon”, and “Good Night” – Meet me at the Tape. The Tail Gate Party continues all the way to Olympics 2024.

TAKE AWAY FROM WAC – 2022

Clearly, some Stars did not take WAC – 2022 seriously. Quite candidly, most Fans find the Olympics more significant. As one look around at the performances, there were Stars not ready to perform well or slowing down. That prompted one competitor to say, “I did not come to compete, I came to win”. Fans like that kind of spunk in an Athlete, it means she came with “Fire in the Belly”. Base on observation, Fans might have to reset expectations for Olympics 2024.

Fans were disappointed that Kemba Nelson did not make the 100M finals but the experience will motivate her. There is a cloud hanging over the performances in the Women’s 100M and 200M. Elaine Thompson-Herah (ETH) was not ready. Her training regiment might be flawed. Too much weight lifting makes you slow. It is also possible that there are undisclosed injuries or concerns. Fans are concerned that there is a bit of regression in ETH performance. We fans like our Star but will speak up. In summary, it was more a case of ETH losing and not necessarily Shelly winning.

Fact is 10.67 is impressive but Fans would be indulging in complacency or mediocrity if they get excited. Until Shelly shows us 10.54 for the 100M, Elaine Thompson-Herah (ETH) is the Fastest Woman Alive but it does not mean she will win every contest. ETH has a lot of work to do to run 10.47 for the Women’s 100M. Fans will take 10.47 anywhere, at WAC 2023 or Olympics 2024.

Acute Fans see bad blood in the interaction between Elaine and Shelly. 10.67 for the 100M will not upstage Elaine. Both Elaine and Shelly have outstanding careers but fans that have participated in Track and Field, believe ETH back to back and Olympic record is heavier and longer lasting. As far as Fans know, the World Record (WR) for the event is 10.49, set in 1988. Therefore, Fans are not certain why 10.67 were presented as a championship record. Is someone about to take 10.49 off the Books?

Not so fast, Fans still think Elaine Thompson-Herah can do 10.47 for the 100M. She just needs to regain focus. MVP is trying to embarrass Elaine Thompson-Herah via Jako Jackson. I am sorry that Shericka Jackson is caught in the middle but until she run a 10.47 100M and or destroy the Olympic Record of 10.61, nothing doing. Yes, we “want to” be starting something.

Where does ETH go from here? She was not ready for 100M and 200M. The times required to win the featured Women events – 100M, 200M, 400M, 800M, 400M Hurdles, and 100M Hurdles were faster than you saw at the National Trials. The anticipated rematch between Elaine Thompson-Herah, Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce, and Shericka Jackson did not materialize.

Elaine Thompson-Herah was not at her best during WAC 2022, July 15 to July 24. The sweep in the Women’s 100M occurred but many dreamt of a 1234 finish with Kemba Nelson joining the Party. Shericka Jackson is making progress with her Speed but given her run pattern she cannot get to 100M before 10.7X seconds as was demonstrated at the Jamaica National Trials and WAC 100M Final.

Track and Field is back. Going forward in the 100M and 200M events, Stars will have no time to keep anything in Reserve, they will leave it all on the Track. Stars will let competitors listen for the Gun and watch the Feet. The moment a competitor’s feet is off Blocks, Stars will BOOGIE. Stars should remember to treat competitors with respect. The competitive conduct in Track is “Good morning”, “Good afternoon”, and “Good Night” – Meet me at the Tape. The Tail Gate Party continues all the way to Olympics 2024.

THE DAWN OF WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS – 2022

The National Track and Field Trials across the Globe are over. What have Fans learned, probably not much? Stars did enough to qualify to compete in their events at WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS – 2022. In the next two weeks, Fans will get a Glimpse of potential performance and times. Base on performances in the Trials, three Countries – Jamaica, United States, and England are vying for all Eight (8) or Nine (9) spots in the Women’s 100M Final. There could be a Triangular Country Face-off with Jamaica completing another sweep or even a 1234 finish, if you include Kemba Nelson, with only three spots on the Podium. That is scary!

Post National Trials, Stars will put their Head, uniform, and Track shoes on. Preparation is on the way for a Track and Field Rematch between Elaine Thompson-Herah, Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce, and Shericka Jackson at World Championships 2022. Some Stars are not ready but they are getting there. Elaine Thompson-Herah (ETH) is etched as the Fastest Woman Alive but that does not mean she will win every contest before World Championships 2022. Regardless of what transpires in June, she is the Fastest Woman Alive.   

Some Stars appear to be carrying a grudge from the Tokyo Olympics to World Championships 2022. That is not a good thing. In the early season, said Stars will run great times because of the anger inside but when it subsides and it will, there will be a return to normal self or even worse in terms of performance in Head-to-Head competition. That is when the Phantom of the Opera is there.

In the 100M and 200M Finals Stars will have no time to keep anything in Reserve, they will leave it all on the Track. Stars will let competitors listen for the Gun and watch the Feet. The moment a competitor’s feet is off Blocks, Stars will BOOGIE. Stars should remember to treat competitors with respect. The competitive conduct in Track is “Good morning”, “Good afternoon”, and “Good Night” – Meet me at the Tape.

Athletes planning to be in the Women’s 100M Final in Oregon with a Personal Best (PB) slower than 10.7X should STAY HOME or skip the event. Participating in the event with a PB south of 10.7X will make you late for Dinner, where Dinner is the Gold Medal. The Women 100M Final in Oregon 2022 is on Track for a Time of 10.47 or better. The Women 200M Final in Oregon 2022 is on Track for a Time of 21.5 or better. Sadly, Gabby Thomas will not impose her will and be a party crasher. Gabby is suffering from Ham String injury. The Tail Gate Party continues.
