She’s performing pretty consistent with what you’d expect based on her results as a NCAA runner. Not sure why we should expect more.
I think he means the hype is not commensurate with the performance. I would agree. I'd say savvy veterans like Stephanie Bruce have a better chance of making the team than Jorgensen. It is also surprising that Bruce hardly gets any publicity or love on these boards, where folks love blue collar athletes. The Bruces are as blue collar as you can get.
I really enjoyed watching Bruce and Lagat race today. Those late race moves were incredible.
Did Jerry coach women at Wisconsin? It is disgusting the way Gwen hypes herself up and the way she uses her son to become popular. Put up some great performances on the road or track and this will give you the real hype needed to make the team.
She doesn’t use her some to become popular. She posts about her son on social media the same way lots of parents do, she just has a larger platform. That’s not the bad thing you think it is.
