Looks like someone forgot about Molly Siedel breaking the FL curse just three years ago. I sent them a brief correction on that but the sentiment is correct. It was a nice article, but I feel like it was too ambiguous about implicating Salazar, who really has nothing at all to do with Tuohy. And I think a nice counter-example would be Jordan Hasay, who many theorized would break the FL curse, and then fizzled out after college only to eventually return full-force in the marathon. It would be nice to see more of those types of career progressions.
