If everyone is 100% healthy, it will be Sisson, Hall and Hasay, with Huddle close behind. From what we know about injuries and recent race results, Hall looks to be in control and a lock to make the team. Neither Hasay nor Sisson have finished a race in quite some time. That would put Huddle in a good position for a spot.
The wild card is Sally Kipyego. She ran well in Berlin with 2:25, but has the talent to be a sub 2:20 marathoner. She is 34, but plenty of women have fast times in their mid 30s in the marathon. But it is tough to make a call. She could blow away everyone or miss the team by a minute or two.
Final answer, Hall, Huddle & Kipyego.
Why in the HELL is everyone so bullish on Sara Hall?
Here are her last 5 marathons starting in 2018.
2:26:20 Ottawa, DNF Frankfurt, 2:35 Boston, 2:22:16 Berlin, DNF NY
1 of the 5 would be good enough to make the team yet you guys are all saying she's a lock? Give me a break.
