VIP SC: Preview Podcast of Florida Meet: Jonathan Gives His Predictions for Matthew Centrowitz In our weekly VIP Friday 15 bonus podcast, Jonathan Gault is put on the spot and is forced to make predictions for Ajee Wilson, Robby Andrews and Matthew Centrowitz. Along the way, we break news and tell you what Elle Purrier is doing at the Olympic Trials and wonder if Charlotte Purdue was royally screwed by the British selectors.

Snub of the Olympiad?

“It just baffles me how they have reached this decision. I am concerned that I’ve not been selected because of Mickey Mouse evidence — false information that is not based on fact.”

Charlotte Purdue expressing her dismay about being left off the British Olympic marathon team despite running faster than Steph Twell (2:25:38 vs 2:26:40), being younger than Twell (29 vs 31) and having beaten Twell head to head in their last 5 races. She says her snub was based off of false information as meeting notes indicate the selectors were told she was only running 30 minutes a day which was false.
