LRC Note: Rojo started his own thread on the race entitled, "That was the CRAZIEST & DUMBEST 800 tactics I've ever seen from a competitor who won an elite 800. Mary Moraa FTW!!" He has merged it with Weldon's thread as he didn't want people to think he was disrespecting Moraa and we only need 1 thread on it.
Heart of gold.Congrats. What a talent. If she gets proper coaching, watch out.
I can't believe it.
She went out like like 25-26, then probably ran like 31 and wen back to nearly last at 500, then came storming bacn and won it. I'm going to watch it again and type up splits.
At 600, I was like, "What an idiot."
I still think it was the worse tactics ever but she is the winner.
Wow. What a talent.
OK. I've rewatched the race and here are her HT splits.
She lead 300, was dead last at 500 and was the winner at 800!!
12.8 (25.95 for 200 and a big lead that's HT so add .24)
30.76 (she had already given up the lead)
16.65 (dead last at 500)
Adds up perfectly to 157.82 ass an HT is supposed to be off by .24. Add 0.24 to 1st 100.
So she went out super hard - 26.2. Then takes a break and runs 47.41 for 300 and then closes it out in 43.46.
