The US distance GOAT?
The US distance GOAT?
She crushed it- great race
American Record half marathon 1:07:11
American Record marathon 2:18:29
#5 American all-time in the 10k - 30:49
Let's not forget this incredible performance when she obliterated the strongest USA 10k field in history - Cranny, Schweizer, Monson, Rogers, Schneider, Infield. 31:03 in extreme heat.
Great job Em!!!💯
Ummm.....every heard of Jordan Hasay??
Her very steady splits, negative split, and very strong finish show that she was running within herself until the end and that she can run 2:17. But for right now, let's enjoy this. She smashed the new American record almost before the ink was dry. This is the first time she really ran close to her potential for the distance.
Good! The record no longer belongs to the most obvious doper in women's marathoning.
As a casual track and field fan, I’m embarrassed to say I knew very little about her before the Olympic Trials.
She’s got a little work to do to be considered the GOAT, but she is certainly on her way.
Too bad we only got about 3 minutes of coverage on her AR today. One of my favorite athletes to watch.
+1. My thoughts exactly.
You forgot that she is not on a drug cheating shoe cheating team sponsored by Nike
It’s fair enough to have some suspicion but throwing around baseless accusations is BS… sorry, but based on the history of the sport and the extremely high level of performance of any of these athletes, everyone is either innocent until busted or they’re all presumably dirty. I don’t see how there is a middle ground.
ok… let’s assume Kiera is dirty… how can you be so sure Emily is clean?
same with Aaron Judge and the “real” home run record… people are trying to tell me that a guy performing at that level in a contract year is undoubtedly clean?
like I said, there are really 3 options If you want to follow any sport these days:
1. Be blissfully ignorant and assume everyone who doesn’t get popped is clean.
2. Presume they are mostly dirty, but be morally ambiguous and just enjoy the show.
3. presume they are dirty and be perpetually jaded and disgruntled as you complain about the good old days (which spoiled… didn’t really exist)
Congrats, Emily! Great race!
Wipes a doped American record off the books. You love to see it.
Seriously though, is this now unironically the clean world record? I had previously given that to Mizuki Noguchi.
Wish that an American race on American soil televised by an American company could have shown a bit more of an American woman running a fast time which turned out to be an American record!
Some aerial footage of her from time to time and then maybe 3 minutes or so at the end is ridiculous…
The Tour de France is constantly going back and forth showing the lead pack, the peloton, favorites, crashes, etc. In this day and age, ESPECIALLY when going in they KNEW that this was going to be possible, they should have covered a lot of her throughout the morning.
Impressive run. Never heard of her before today. Seems to have a bright future and I wish her future success.
Careful. Trigger happy mods are going to delete your post and ban you. Speculating about doping is allowed, unless he/she is a mod favorite.
the drug cheat?
Waiting for the blackout page for the accomplishment. Make it happen Wejo!
Much easier to believe Sisson is clean considering her background. You must think the women’s winner of Berlin is clean as well
Her coach has a great reputation and Molly Huddle is also a clean athlete.
