"Backing up to that one stride before the line specifics, it is clear from foot placements that she's already passed Muir, so the final result is actually not at all in doubt. She simply lunged for the line awkwardly/veering right, perhaps purposefully, but it hardly mattered at that point. Given all the above its easy to see why no protest was filed by Muir, she knew she was beat and it would have been bush league to whine over it. Glad to see sportsmanship still exists.'
You don't know what in the hell you're talking about fool! Rowbury leans over into Muir clearly before the line - maybe not enough to get disqualified but clearly a bull$hit move to win the race - Look at Muir's face, you can tell she's been banged before the line and is pissed off!
I once had a guy do this to me back in the day twice in the middle of a two mile and everyone saw it, so I waited to the last lap and in front of everyone watching at the line swung way out purposely into lane 5 to go around him - Like 'Landy' he was looking to the inside and didn't see me pass around the outside and I had him by 10 on the backstretch and held it to the line and gave a double arm raised 'Fu$#k You' sign at the end - ran a 9:08 PB Everybody was high - 5'ing me at the finish and laughing calling the guy a total scum F'er!
Rowbury's good, I like her efforts - (a 3:57 is absolutely awesome) and how she handles herself but this was well beneath her normally high standards of sportsmanship and she should apologize for grabbing for the money by twacking people out of the way! Cheap Chicken $hit win in my opinion!
