RE: Kim Smith 15:02 5k, Molly Huddle 8:57 3k @ New Balance Boston Twilight Meet!
The IAAF just changed the rules this year so that 5ks and 10ks on the track at permitted meets(in the US you need to be USATF certified, which this meet is) can be co-ed and still used as qualifiers for Worlds. So at least in Kim's case, I'm guessing since the performance can be used as a qualifier it should be recognized as the world leader. Great run for her!

I wonder if any women will try to take advantage of the co-ed 10k at this the 2nd NBB Twilight meet this weekend.
