RE: CONGRATUALTIONS to Jenny Simpson, But Cain WTF???????
Cain's got terrific speed, yes, but she doesn't yet have the strength and experience to go through three rounds. The fact she made it through to the finals was astounding. I figured she would've been spent for the semis.
She's only ever had to run one 1500/mile per event. She's never had to go through heats at this distance, so it is totally unrealistic to expect she'd burst out and be a medal contender.
Because it isn't such a trick to run one mile really well. The trick, what makes the world class world class, is they can repeat that performance two or three times in as many days. Even top level milers have trouble at this. Webb for all his speed at a young age, never was able to figure out how to leverage that speed through three rounds. It takes as much training and skill as it does to get good at that first mile.
