Think it is going on at the moment. Assume the 15 is sometime soon.
I'm just surprised there s zero coverage of what may be one of the fastest 1500s in the US this season with last years World number 1, a sub 4 girl and two college standouts. (granted the trials are starting tomorrow)
Also, amazing Pierce is going for the A this late, will it effect her trials
Personally i think this is fantastic execution and no it should not effect her (in a negative way at least). The 1500 trials aren't until the 28th, so 8 days should nto be an issue, and the first round "should" not be an issue, so really she has even more time until the final. If anything this is a great tune up race, and i'd rather see her getting the A standard now, then getting it in April ahead of time. She's only run under 4:06 twice since 2009, both in 2010 and neither under 4:04. If she's going to be competitive at the olympics she needs to plan this year perfectly. Her hitting the A stanard on June 20th is a good sign of getting into the right shape at the right time. She now has 1.5 months to fine tune and get back to sub 4 shape. She probably could have gone a bit faster today, but the plan was surely only to go after the A standard and not risk anything.
