Shalane finished second in a race that did not tell us anything about her ability to run the marathon. It was a 21 mile jog followed by a 5 mile race. I don't count that against Jerry but it is a push.
Nelson a 27:40 guy could only muster a 2:15 and Bairu couldn't finish.
Agreed, tactical races shouldn't count. They should introduce rabbits to the Olympic.
