All you have to do is look at the times she ran and see how the injury affected her. She was steadily improving every year until the 2015 injury. After that, she ran OK times through 2016 but never really got back in form until late 16 and this year.
If she had the fitness she has now and was in that Olympic 10000, she would have run sub 31 easily.
So despite being healthy for 9 months leading up to the trials and setting an indoor mile and 3k PR in February, she wasn't in peak fitness in June?
Got it. Thanks for the heads up. Makes perfect sense. I forgot that it takes 10 months, not 9 to drop your 10k ability by over a minute.
Her indoor mile and 3k PRs are from 2015, pre-injury.https://www.iaaf.org/athletes/united-states/jordan-hasay-219561
