EUGENE (USA): World champion Dafne Schippers will clash with Jamaican Elaine Thompson who was just behind her last year in Beijing at Pre Classic 200 m. But current 100 m world leader Tori Bowie could spoil the party. Also running US sprinters Candyce McGrone, Kimberlyn Duncan, Jenna Prandini, Jo Atkins and young Kaylin Whitney.

Larry Eder responds: All respect to Elaine Thompson. With Elaine Thompson, Tori Bowie and Dafne Schippers, do not be surprised if it takes 21.85 to win at Pre!

Dafnes Schippers has run 10.83 (second in Doha, May 6), 10.94 (win at CityGames, May 20) and 22.02 (first, Hengelo, May 22 ). Elaine Thompson has a 10.71 under her belt this season as wwTori Bowie has a 10.80 (win, Doha), plus a 10.91 in chilly Herzogenaurach (May 14) and an earlier 22.23 for 200 meters. The battle for the Pre Classic 200 meters is on!
