With Jamaica’s sprint squad riding high after a sweep of the women’s 100m medals at Tokyo last summer, Team USATF’s trio of talented dash women will count on a touch of home track advantage to break up that stranglehold and bring home the first World Championships medal in the event since 2017. Melissa Jefferson won the USATF Championships with a stunning 10.69w, aided by a +2.9 m/s wind, and she needed her extra gear to stave off Aleia Hobbs, who is the U.S. list leader at 10.81 this season and finished at 10.72w. Jefferson has run three wind-legal sub-11 races this year, including her PR of 10.82 in the USATF semis. TeeTee Terry has also put together a string of 10 sub-11 outings in 2022, including four with a legal wind, and her best of 10.87 should challenge for a spot in the final. Jamaica’s Elaine Thompson-Herah and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce appear unstoppable on paper, with Fraser-Pryce topping the world list at 10.67 and Thompson-Herah bringing a 10.61 lifetime best that she set in winning Olympic gold last year. Switzerland’s Mujinga Kambundji won the World Indoors 60m title in March and could be a medal threat.

Women’s 200m

1st round: July 18, 6:00 p.m. 
Semis: July 19, 6:05 p.m. 
Final: July 21, 7:35 p.m.
Team USATF: Abby Steiner (Dublin, Ohio/USATF Kentucky), Tamara Clark (High Point, North Carolina/USATF Texas Southern), Jenna Prandini (Pflugerville, Texas/USATF Central California)
WC Medal History: 13 medals – 4G, 8S, 1B
Last Gold: 2009 – Allyson Felix
Last Medal: 2019 – silver, Brittany Brown
 
Abby Steiner obviously likes running at Hayward Field. She won the NCAA title for Kentucky with a collegiate record 21.80 and then came back two weeks later to match that in the USATF semis before taking gold in 21.77. Pair that with sub-11 100m speed and some rapid 4x400m relay legs, and it’s apparent she is a contender for the top of the podium, even in the presence of world-leading Shericka Jackson of Jamaica, who rocketed to a 21.55 at her national championships. Reigning world champion Dina Asher-Smith of Britain and Elaine Thompson-Herah of Jamaica, the double Olympic sprint champion in Tokyo, are locks to dip under 22 seconds, with Nigeria’s Favour Ofili also a contender and familiar with Steiner after their Southeastern Conference tussles. Tamara Clark and Jenna Prandini will need to be in top form to challenge for a medal, but should be in the hunt for a lane in the final.
