She beats all the black-African runners, which is mind-boggling to me.
Well, she almost beat Elaine Thompson last night, but she stumbled out of the blocks, then stumbled and rolled over the finish line after pushing enormous exertion to finish just a 10th of a second behind the winning time, taking the silver in the 200 meters. It was astonishing.
Either she's amped up on 'roids or the black chicks now have slower times because effective PED regulations and enforcement.
Either way, Schippers is the new Great White Hope of humanity.
At the Netherlands Times, "DUTCH SPRINTER DAFNE SCHIPPERS DISPLEASED WITH 200-METER SILVER MEDAL":
The Dutch athlete is disappointed in second place. “I hate this very much. I came here to get gold, and I didn’t do that”, she said to broadcaster NOS after the race. “I can’t enjoy this. Horrible.”Also, from last week, at USA Today, "New kid in blocks: Dutch sprinter Dafne Schippers eyes gold."
Thompson finished with a time of 21.78 seconds, Schippers finished at 21.88 seconds. Third place went to American Tori Bowie.
