During the 3k. I was standing over by the fence at 200m, and heard the Oregon women's coach yelling at Mary Cain during the 3k.
3 laps in, I overhear the UO coach say "Mary was supposed to wait 2 laps to take the lead. I need to call alberto"
Then she makes a call, then waits for Mary to come around and yells "Mary, Mary, Alberto says to move out to lane 2 and let the girl pass. You need to follow for the next 2 laps. Move out to lane 2"
Then Mary moves out to lane 2...and jenks doesn't go by. so Mary just continues to lead.
The whole situation was bizarre, and strange since Cain took the lead from the gun and was the class of the field
This is one of the idiotic posts I've read lately on LRC, and based on the extraordinary BS that is posted on these MBs that is saying a lot.
Evening assuming the OP's apocryphal tale is somehow true - so f'ing what. He was or still is in Europe for DL meets and was calling it in. Is there really something strange about a coach coaching? More likely than not, I'm responding to a troll as I was there and not far from Powell and didn't observe anything that resembled OP's bogus claim.
