|Subject: ||RE: Cayla Hatton, High School Senior, Runs 33:17 10,000m Olympic Trials |
Putting aside the issue of whether her time will count coming from a mixed-gender race, will 33:17 make the Trials? (Personally, I think the powers that be at USATF should waive the mixed-gender issue for a high school athlete who probably doesn't have many opportunities to run in a women's only 10K race).
Looking at the 2011 USA meet, 33:31 got in (24 in the field):
At the '08 Trials, 33:24 got in (24 in the field):
Based on that, you'd think she can get in as they are taking 24 this year. But the difference this year, as best I can tell, is that marks are being accepted dating back to May 2011, whereas in past USA meets and Olympic Trials, they began accepting marks from the previous June. Will it be tougher this year? Will people like Flanagan, Goucher and Davilla run even though they've already made the team in the marathon?
Sure would be great to see a rising phenom at the Trials.
