She will enter tomorrow's finals at as the top seed with a qualifying time of 53.99 and will be considered the favorite to win gold. Reflecting on Wednesday's preliminary round, where she won heat 2 with a time of 54.97, Eutsey said "It was alright... I picked it up tonight at 100m to go because I could feel Sandrae (Farqhuharson of Jamaica) on my shoulder and then I cruised at the end." As she looks forward to the finals, she believes she can run much much faster, saying "If somebody pushes me, I want to go 51." Her current PR is 52.42 from the Miami Elite Invitational earlier this year. That is second all-time for a Florida high schooler.
