But I bet you loved Rupp's Chicago win.
Keitany wasn't forcing everyone in the field to run slow. They chose to do so.
But why does that matter? Flanagan's last 10k was incredible.
Flanagan hit 20 miles at 1:54:39
Flanagan hit the finish in 2:26:53. So Shalane's last 10k+ 8 meters was 32:14. That's hilly as hell.
Hasay's 10k pb on a perfectly flat track is 31:39.
But ypou probably think I hate Hasay? False. I predicted she'd beat Desi in Boston and was 100% on that prediction.
Now, do I think there's a higher percentage change that Hasay is doping than Desi? Yes, I do.
In terms of most suspicious to least suspicious, I'dd go. Rupp, Hasay, Jager, Flanagan, Linden.
By your logic, I should be ashameda s I said Linden might be doping. I'd bet my life she's not but I start with the assumption that everyone but myself might be dirty and work from there. So if someone honestly responds to a question, "I don't know what to think about the NOP" given the fact that former team members have expressed reservations, their is a USADA investigation etc, there should be no outrage. It's common sense.
Come on, Rojo. Even Paula acknowledged the unnecessary snark from Shalane.
It's possible for American distance fans to equally celebrate both performances. However, it's pretty classless to scrutinize one and not the other, particularly given that there is no actual evidence of any wrongdoing (as of yet), and both groups have access to and have utilized that access to all the same resources and associations.
I don't even mind LetsRun Editorial's messageboard stances on the suspicions. But it's that you let it carry out onto your Front Page with a very clear bias that rubs most of your critics the wrong way. It's not necessarily that we're supporting Salazar, NOP, etc.; it's just the double standards by you guys are so visible on this issue.
