it would not surprise me at all if they had a womens 5k and womens 3k and it would not surprise me if flanagan runs one race and t. dibaba runs the other that way bostons ethiopian community can watch t. dibaba run in attempt at a world record, and also have the hometown girl in a race she has a better than average chance to win, kind of like when ovett and coe would run in the same meet and 1 would run the mile and the other would run the 1500.
That would make sense, but that is not what they are saying:
"She is scheduled to face Ethiopian Tirunesh Dibaba, the woman who crossed the line first in Beijing in both the 5000m and 10,000m races."
Somehow I don't think we've seen the last update to this story... hopefully the athletes know what events they are going to run.
