    Just when you thought the divine Daphne was done, she went out a broke the 100m record for the Great Northern Games street 100 today. Evidently, she doesn't get as worn down by racing as some sprinters do:

    there she is - I was looking for her in Rieti meet.
    Yes, probably so used to training for the heptathlon that it's almost like she's backed off training.
    Strong, confident and chases a win every time. The real deal!

    One of the best videos I've seen in a long time. Whites can be just as fast as anyone with good genetics and hard work. There are more Schippers out there. There are with out a doubt many young european boys and girls who could excel in the sprints. Most go into other sports. I'm hoping this is going to slowly change.

    Very exciting times in track and field.

    Nice to see an attractive White woman outrunning all those steroidal negroes. :)

    Dafne was ranked #1 in the world in the 200m for 2015,
    and ranked #2 in the world in the 100m.

    Fingers crossed for a gold medal at the Rio Olympics!

    Dafne opened her season with a win in Germany and a world leading time of 7.07 in the 60 meters.

    Dafne is the most exciting female sprinter on the planet! Nothing would make me happier than to see her take home a double gold medal this summer at the Olympics. She was so close at the World Chamionships taking a gold and a silver medal.

    Schippers is an amazing athlete. Much easier on the eyes than much of her competition as well: [​IMG]

    She looks like a (handsome) Man running against girls. She reminds and looks like a former East German turned unified German World Champion, "Golden Girl" Katrin Krabbe.

    First Schippers.

    Then Katrin Krabbe

    Or if one wants to be unflattering, a very handsome version of Jarmila Kratochvilova.

    Schippers has not only the world leading time in the 200m, but also the 3rd, 4th, and 6th fastest times in the world.
    And in the 100m she has the 3rd fastest time in the world.
    Even more amazing considering this is only her 2nd full season of sprinting.
    Previously she had been one of the top heptathletes in the world.

    Thanks for the video, she is so relaxed in her face throughout the race. I find it interesting that so many Negroes accuse Dafne of using PED's because she is big, tall, strong, fast and lovely to look at, well I say pause the video where they have Dafne and VCB in the same shot at the blocks and tell me who is juicing.....lol on a side note Ghafoor looks like a man......Horn flails too much which causes her shoulders to hunch and become tight, if she can relax her shoulders a bit more this girl is gonna be heard from!


    Cheers.......

    Yes big disappointment but a few things stick in my mind. First a Silver is still a great accomplishment and she ran a solid race. Remember white athletes picked up bronze medals in the long jump but Rutherford was favoverd to win the gold so again some disappointment. Drouin's high jump gold is the big moment for me in Rio.
    That said the 200 M race was strange and I don't want to get into technicalities or start rumours but something did not seem right folks and I will leave it at that.
    But as much as I root for white athletes some of them like Mike Trout I really really admire. I put Dafne in that category now because she was disgusted she only won the silver . Did anyone see her reaction at the end of the race? She was pissed off and I like to see that fire in the belly. She isn't hiding in her white people can't run fast alloted corner--she went out guns a blazin! Just love her fight.
    If the Dutch are in the 4 x 100 we will see her again but remember the World Championships are next year so she has a chance to avenge her loss to the Jamaican.
    I love Dafne you go girl!!!

    "I didn't come all the way here for Silver" - I wish we had some athletes with that attitude.

    C/F our Australian pretend sprinter Melissa Breen after her 1st round debacle- "I'm just so happy to be here in the team having a great time" - (to paraphrase "wow, thanks Australian public for the paid holiday in Rio and the tracksuit for my collection)

    Unfortunately Dafne messed up on the 4x 100 M relay costing the Dutch a spot on the final. A real shame because they had a chance to make some noise. She left too early causing a real slow down.Too bad I wanted to see her run again but these things can happen in the relays. I still love her.

    that is awesome, she expects to win that's the way it should be...the next few races at the end of this season I think she will make a statement unless she shuts it down

    (to paraphrase "wow, thanks Australian public for the paid holiday in Rio and the tracksuit for my collection) LMFAO!

    People like that are beaten before the race starts. Schippers tossed her flag in anger to the ground, she has fire and determination, similar to Borzov and Wells and even drug cheat Johnson. Athletes like Breen remind me of boxers that want to be friends with the champion before the fight and are mentally ready to check out the minute they receive a concussive shot.
