What event is [Chmiel] training for?
Lane was training to win the National Championship again, which she did.
Chmiel was training to win the Edinburgh International Cross Country Race, which she did.
Chmiel planned to peak for Edinburg (which is a pretty meaningless race)? That is very odd. Who told you that?
"Pretty meaningless race"? But, watched by more people in Europe and beyond than any cross country race in the USA could imagine.
Not allowed to Google.
Who won the women junior race last year in Edinburg?
Who won NXN or FL girl race last year?
Same question on the boy side.
There you go. NXN/FL are more important than Edinburg. As poster above said. Chmiel focussed on NXN.
More important to whom? How many viewers watched your NXN/FL races compared with the Edinburgh race?
You have a very parochial view of world athletics.
