RE: alicia johnson pacing - wtf ?
Again, you blame the pacer when the pacer doesn't come close to doing the job. Nothing wrong with a kicker's race, but that wasn't the expectation when atheletes made the decision to do this race. Some of the brits were going to get a fast time and they were told the pacer would take it out.
I'm sure all the runners (ecept for maybe two) in the race were taken by surprise with the first 200 and by the time they could react it was now a different race. Really quite brilliant set up, but sure wasn't an honest one.
