We have to get over it, it was a day made for bookies.
Saidy Ndure (2nd fav) finished 5th in men 200m.
Svoboda (big fav) finished 5th in men 110m hurdles.
Marta Dominguez (big fav) finished 2nd in women 3000m steeplechase.
Hingst (european top list leader) finished 11th in women pole vault.
Jonathan Borlee (big fav) finished 7th in men 400m.
Not looking good for Antyukh and Savinova, although Russians delivered so far.
Her previous best indoor was 51.41, it's not like she had a great run. She didn't even get inside 51. And with your logic she should run something like 49.50 in London at 30...
Of course she didn't go under 51 seconds indoors, thats very rare anyways. She did record 4 out of the 10 best times this year worldwide indoors. And she ran close to 50 flat outdoors on several different occasions and in several different years already, so you know these kind of times are within her reach. It's not like she is coming from a 51+ seconds PB like suggested, in fact Ustalova scrapped almost half a second off her best. But it was anyones race to win between the three Russians and they all were very quick. Maybe they had some luck with the wind or something, the others were fast too...
