Fastest since Kastor, yes. Best, no. Samuelson is still best, then Kastor. Hasay is also rivaled by Catalano, Cragg, Linden, and Flanagan; sheâ€™s probably ahead of Goucher now.
from 2;23 to 2;20! The girl has it. None of those women would be able to run at 2:15 pace with Dibaba. At one point the ladies were running on WR pace, and Hasay was right there.
all those other women would have died after 2 miles. Dibaba went out blazing at the gun, no let up.
Hasay just ran the 2nd fastest marathon ever at the age of 26 and she beat florence kipligat a 2;19 marathoner. That is how brutal that pace was! florence died. Hasay did not!
