So she switched events and now she is off the team.
Looks like a huge mistake for her.

Not as big a mistake as Jenny. She could have won the OG
she was ranked #2 in the world in the 800 a few years ago, no?
maybe those days are permanently behind her, but at her prime she was much better on the world stage in the 8/15 than she was was (and probably ever could be) in the steeple.
if she had done the steeple yeah she probably would've made the US team but she would've had basically no shot at doing anything great. if she had made the team in the 15 and rounded into shape well, the sky would have been the limit.
It's pretty clear Pierce just doesn't like the steeple. I can see something not liking it.
