|Subject: ||RE: Erica Moore 800m at Worlds|
Okay, let's be realistic: this was a good effort and a great story, but her last 200 was ugly. None of the medalists from 2011 World Outdoors were in this race. None of the members of the US team from 2011 were at USA Indoors when she qualified for this event, and none of those people have gone away. She has stamped herself as a contender for the Olympic Team, but 8 American women ran faster last year than she did today, 5 of them at USA Outdoors. If she keeps getting stronger so she can finish that last 200 she has a chance at going to the Olympics, but it's far from a sure thing. I'm impressed with her and wish her the best, but there are lots of good American women in the 800 right now.
