American distance tanking so far... what does that include... 2 events concluded?
Mens marathon, we send our weakest squad, internationally speaking, in years and they put up a 4th in the team standings.
In both steeples we send an incrredibly young team, but they all run respectably and give themselves a shot at the finals but come up just short, what do you expect from this event without our big guns in it?
Womens 10k, we have all 3 finish in the top 12 or so, and one medal and one place 6th!
Mens 10k, we have Abdi go after it and end up 7th running a very respectable race and ritz and rupp both in the top 11!
In the 1500, we have 2 of our 3 in the final... both with a great shot to medal.
The womens 800 didnt go so great, but when does it ever?
We still have a strong 5k squad on both sides, a good 800m mens team, the 1500 final, etc etc. I think things are going well now considering the strength of certain teams.
