RE: Ritz out of World Cross
I'm disappointed to read this. Can't help but wonder what the injury is. Anyone else would have been criticized for being so vague about the injury, but after his achievements over the last several months, he's earned the respect to not have to declare the injury. No one thinks he dodges competition.
It does seem fishy that his no-go is also blamed on a stomach virus. AlSal's other protege (Rupp) nearly skipped the indoor 5K due to a similar reason but ran it and did quite well (besting his old indoor PR), although it would have been interesting to see Rupp at 100% in that race.
