Other than Emma Coburn, what has high altitude America produced?????
If this is a genuine question, you are profoundly retarded and should turn over your laptop to your live-in caregiver immediately.
Confused? Well, here's some help: What fraction of the U.S. adult population do you think was both born and raised at high altitude (let's say 5,000') and lives there now?
I'll give you a hint: The answer is less than two percent, and way less than one percent if you bump that up to even 5,500'.
So please, shut your frigging mouth before I punch and kick and maim you Internetically.
Thank you for your kind & sensitive response.
Now please explain St. Patrick's High School in Iten, Kenya.

Crested Butte is over 7500 feet. Emma (I think) was born and raised there. She played multiple sports in HS. She has a sister who may have been more talented in HS, although neither really trained. Not sure where the sister ended up or if she ran in college. Anybody know? Joe (the boyfriend) came to Crested Butte as a junior from WI. After a few years he began to excel. But still did not do much until as a redshirt freshman became a D1 All-American. Congrats to both!!!
Actually the elevation of Crested Butte is over 8900' which is significantly higher than 7500'. Every route out of town except one goes up to even higher elevations.
Just living an active life in high school at that elevation would lay down a great aerobic foundation, even if she did not train that seriously.
