She just throws these times out like they're nothing. This year she's run 4:14, 4:16, 4:17, 4:19, 4:39 mile, 4:24...not to mention her 2:03 and 9:30 3000. Very impressive stuff.
Side note: I guess Cami Chapus and the heat don't mix. CA State..this? Disappointing finish for her but she's had a great career.
You got that right! Mary has yet to run in an open competition race. For HS only competition she has had possibly the greatest season ever. This should put her in the OLY Trials where she should be able to throw down a real fast one. I say she she can approach sub 4:10. Should be fun to see! Go get em Mary!!!
Not quite. Only 30 get in, and there are 38 women ahead of her. Depending on who of those doesn't run it's a squeaker.
Interesting that she's only 1.5 seconds behind Hasay for the season, and still has only run in HS/Jr meets where she dominates. I agree she is in around 4:11 shape.
Looks like there at least 35 women that have made the "A" Standard in the 1500, and Cain is almost two seconds off that standard. The 800 Trials may have a place for Cain. If so, Cain will have a shot at Mary Decker's soph 800 record of 2:02.29.
As I read IAAF age standards, Cain cannot compete in Spain. She was born in 1996 and I do not think she is old enough. She will make it on age for the World Youth Championships in 2013.
