US junior star Mary Cain flew to Germany to race a 1500 today and had a very poor result finishing 2nd to last in 4:20.73.
1:45 into the race Cain was off the back. (The World television feed on BeIN Sports cut away for the pole vault so there is the possibility Cain fell but we don't think so). She'd run in no woman's land the rest of the way until the finish.
The pace upfront was not that fast as 800 was in 2:13.39. Axumawit Embaye would get the win over Germany's Konstanze Klosterhalfen.
It's the slowest 1500 we could find from Cain since 2011 according to all-athletics.com but there is a possibility she ran slower in a high school competition not in all-athletics.
We've reached out to her agent to see if she got tangled up in the first 3 laps.
