Olivia: 1:59.80 !!!

There was also a big time lifetime best for Chrisann Gordon-Powell of Jamaica in the women’s 800m after she recorded an impressive time of 1:59.52 to win that event in Nashville, beating American Olivia Baker who clocked a PB as well of 1:59.80 for second place.

Wow, breaking 2 minutes is incredible! Way to go, Olivia! 

1:58.46 just now, live, in Oregon at USATF Outdoor semis. Rapid progression. She’s on to the finals.

Ms. Mu was in her semi. Definitely a plus.

I see that Hazel Clark, the 2nd fastest girl in her family (in this event), ran a 1:57.99 in 2005. 

If I understand commentator on the replay, 1:57.00 is world best in this event this year.
