" If we were her, we'd take it really easy early here and make sure we finished second."
IMO, advocating for a world class athlete to run for 2nd place is lame. Very lame. Shame on LRC.
Competition shouldn't be about trying to take it easy and run for 2nd place, IMO, unless it's a qualifying heat.
I hope it's a great race, and that both Jelimo and Savinova run hard, and compete completely, ignoring this ridiculous advice from LRC.
