Really? got any good recipes for "sole food?"
15:06 and 07 are good times considering how slow the early laps were. Huddle and Rowbury could have easily run sub 14:50 in a rabbited race.
No one is going to beat the Africans. The Europeans don't even try anymore. Rowbury would have been more competitive in the 1500 and Huddle just does not have a kick in a kicker's race. But a good result for both girls, imo.
Awesome running. Much better than the men's event.
2:51 and 2:41 the last two kilometers.
