Garcia is obviously a very talented runner and consistently ranks with the top girls, but whenever i watch her race there's something really off about her stride. it almost looks like she's in pain or like she's trying way too hard.
this was very evident at USA Outdoor Champs in the steeplechase where she landed hard after each water pit and looked like she couldn't hold her balance. that's why she always gets fourth now. the other girls (Coburm, Frerichs, Quigley) always look smooth and composed. this same thing happened at the olympic trials.
would love to see her make a world team again but the coburn-quigley-frerichs trifecta is hard to beat.
