Not sure why no one is talking about Parker Stinson on the men's side? He's probably the only American in the field - other than Rupp - with a shot at 2:10 or better. What he did at CIM was more impressive than Ritchie winning in 2:11 or McCandless' 2:12.
But Stinson's approach could come back to bite him - he may try to hang with Galen and Mo for 20 miles then die another slow death to the finish....
I think it has something to do with this thread being about Gwen Jorgensen.
