I don't believe I said anything about AJ except that Twell should have passed her. It's between AJ and meet management as to whether or not she gets paid if she didn't do the job. But I'm certain it was not part of AJ's job description to "babysit Stephanie Twell and make sure she has a good race". If Twell wants to run a fast time it's up to her to make sure she's going fast enough - not someone else. I was watching a blurry picture on the internet from 3,000 miles away and I could tell by 150 meters that they were crawling. I'm sure someone actually running in the race could have figured that out much sooner. To say that the 1500 is to short to recover from making a mistake is ridiculous. If you're 200 in and the pace is slow, GO FASTER!
