Sorry, but your anger is entirely misplaced, and is totally bereft of any sense - it is people like you who are what is wrong with the world today.
Her focus was on her team, as it should have been. Anything else is secondary. You sound like one of the "please give everyone props and a medal to go" people. No wonder we live in a pansy world these days.
Since when is acknowledging competitors in post-race interviews a requirement for not being considered arrogant...or for that matter, for any other reason?
I fail to see how this qualifies Martinez as being arrogant. She almost certainly wouldn't have known Tully, met her before this race, or even known her name, all factors that contribute to it being unlikely for Martinez make reference to Tully.
I don't get why OP seemingly thinks it was a requirement for Martinez to give Tully a verbal BJ in the interview...I guess OP is just a really big fan of the NJNY track club and wants actually successful runners like Martinez to give them recognition. After all, considering these are the wannabes who finish dead last in their final at USA's (if they make it that far) and can't even hit 'A' standards, I suppose they have to take every opportunity to shine, even the little ones like finishing kind of close behind Brenda Martinez at an early season indoor meet.
