FYI brojos the link to this thread from the article took me to the "why I sucked in college" page.
Who I want to make the Olympic team:
Kate Grace, ideally in the 1500 but I suppose she knows her fitness better than I do. She's gotta be in 4:02 shape from the speed side, so that puts her in contention for the trials. Rounds of the 800 also benefit her, but she shouldn't best Brenda, and you gotta think Wilson will make the team.
As for the 5 and 10, I don't really pretend to know who will be top three other than Huddle. Lots of girls have run 31:40ish and 15:10ish. I just hope the trials 5k goes fast, as it won't be sit and kick for too long in the Olympic final. The Japanese will take it out in 4:50 before the Ethiopians take off for the final 3k in 8:20.
Men: I don't like jmac like wejo does but I'd be happy for him to make the team. I'd like to see centro and Andrews, and ideally Blankenship. I need him to run well so I don't have to hear about him storming off after he gets 4th again.
800: berian and brazier, plus Solomon. Solomon clearly isn't close to his best but he still should be able to pull it together. Some people assume he's dirty because he dropped so much time in 2012 but I trust any saucony athlete because their contracts make them give back all their money if busted for doping.
5/10: I will be happy as long as Ben True gets in. Other than him, you gotta root for Lagat
