Olga Yegorova kicked Paula's butt. If you will remember Paula was afraid to even be in the same race with her and pulled out, AFTER getting only 4th place in the 10,000.
That's when Paula put her plan in place to discredit the ones she feared and send a warning to anyone else who would keep beating her. Surely you remember her holding up a sign saying CHEATS OUT and making an ass of herself?
Of course when over and over you falsely accuse and intimate everyone else in the press -- and no one is left to run against -- then you will be #1 in the world. The world, that is, of no runners who would like chance kicking your butt and getting the same treatment you gave Olga. No surprise!
Oh aren't you smart to do such a thing? No, you just showed your FEAR of facing any real competition.
In case anyone else hasn't figured this out, Paula was losing every race by seconds, and now she's winning by minutes. Did everyone else lay down and die in the meantime?
No they just did the same thing that Olga Yegorova did. They realized they can run and do well and do whatever they wish to do in the world of running -- as long, that is -- as they don't beat Paula. OH NO! She would hold up some more signs, and go crying to the press, and get them banned from their races. Who would want to subject themselves to all that crap? NO ONE.
So Paula -- Cheats out -- You're not really #1 and I have a question for you.
Cheats out --- so --- Why are you still running???
CHEATS OUT... SO GET OUT... CHEAT.
Get out and let the real runners run. The sport will be much better without you.
