You failed to mentione that.
Except for the 5 superhuman women who beat her, she ran the fastest outdoor time since 2007, setting most of the pace herself. Sounds pretty good to me.
10 years ago, I could get a guy to run 1420 and 2940 and he'd dominate the Ivy League. Now he won't even score.
he probably wouldn't have scored in the Doha women's 3000 either.
Thanks to the Internet (and letsrun has a small role), good coaching is global now. People should be good.
Especially people from countries with limited internet access?
Up until 2004, only 264 Americans had ever broken 4. Now 420 guys have done it. So we've had 154 guys do it in the last 10 years whereas only 264 did it in the first 47.
Yay America. Which one of them is going to run sub-3:30?
