Father Alistair Lawson said Emily faced a tough challenge in the races ahead but that she had prepared well.
‘‘If everyone runs their best performances, Emily will have to do a personal best to make the second round,’’ he said.
‘‘She would then have to run a couple seconds quicker than she ever has run before to make the finals. I am really hoping she will get to the second round and I would say she would be very disappointed if she didn’t get to the second round.’’
Emily has prepared well for the competition both at home and overseas, winning the 400
Now settled into the team village in Oregon, Emily has also had access to high quality training facilities and ice baths to help her recovery and preparation.
Emily will also be competing in the 4
Alistair said he hoped the IAAF website would have live streaming of the race, but failing that, the website offers a radio stream of all events.
