How old is Hasay?
Has she ever...?
Y'all are seeing a different race that I am.
Here are post -race interviews with Hasay and Rowbury. Rowbury admitted she was supposed to lead a few laps:
Hasay seemed resigned to the fact Shannon was going to beat her no matter what:
Emma Bates, Juliet Bortoff. Both currently have much slower 10k PRs than Hasay but Bates ran 34:38 in 2012, 33:37 in 2013, 32:20 in 2014 and her collegiate 5k PR is faster than Hasay's (15:33 v 15:37). Bortoff is a bit slower than Bates but she's been focusing on longer stuff as a pro and running pretty well. Emily Sisson is also a possibility though I think Treacy redshirted her during cross in the fall to have a shot at the podium in 2015 so she may not want to have such a long track campaign. Rachel Ward, Hastings both ran around 32:20 last year. Erin Finn ran 32:40s as a freshman so she definitely has a lot of room for improvement. 2014 was also a bit of an off year for the 10k since there was no world champs, looking back at the 2013 list there's a lot of ifs.
Hasay should be a shoo in for the 10k worlds. Flannagan (if she runs), Huddle (if she runs). Connelly, Goucher? Who else is in the competition?
