Ryan had his balls busted early by Merga.
What does this show for the future?
It probably means there were 2 women in front of Goucher in her race and two in front of Hall in his race. Maybe there were more though. In the future, there will probably be more people in front of each of them. They will probably be Africans.

I guess "competing" is the word, but the US is still far from being competitive against Kenya and Ethiopia.
How many Kenyans/Eth. were in the top 10?
Its a step in the right direction, but still a ways to go for competing against the best in the world.
if you got as many young americans to at least be active (play soccer, swim and / or run) and THEN actually give running a serious chance competitively when they start to mature, then you'd see us with that depth.
imagine if we could get all the kids who grow up in colorado, and the higher elevations of montana, utah and arizona to get excited about running. the kids who were born at alitude like hall.
