[i] Editor's note: This thread was started on Wednesday by an unregistered poster using the handle "Bad News Brewing" with a title of "So sorry for Hasay" and it implied that Jordan Hasay had pulled out of the 2018 IAAF World Half Marathon Championships. Since the original poster was replying to their own thread under different names, we incorrectly assumed they were trolling. We wrote USATF today and they confirmed that Jordan Hasay has withrdawn from the World Half Champs. Their statement to us says, "She has withdrawn, per her agent Ricky Simms. " We have written back and asked them if they have any more info - injury, ilness, etc.
Update #1 - David Monti reported on twitter she pulled out with a plantar issue.
Update #2 - Hasay's agent Ricky Simms has gotten back to us. We asked him about her status for Boston and he wrote, "Jordan pulled out of the World Half earlier this week with a tight plantar. It is more precautionary with Boston so close. We expect her to be fine for Boston. "
We apologize for not trusting the wisdom of our own messageboard where rumor after rumor over the last 18 years has come true time after time. The OP's initial post appears below our article link[/u]
Sorry for the bad news. You'll be back.
