Which is why I ask [no sarcasm] "What's up with Symmonds?"

Also, separate question: what would the USA men's A team 4 x 1500m actually be?


Symmonds doesn't shock me. The guy hasn't raced outdoors. Do we konw if he's fit at all? I'm not sure he'd even be top 4 in the US right now. Well I take that back, he's almost always top 4 in US but i don't think it's that much of a difference if he runs or not given the fact he hasn't raced.

The one that surprises me is Sowinski. Why wouldn't he be there? He's in great form, not a big name and thus could benefit a lot from a medal, possible WR, American record,etc.

I can't believe he's not on the team.

As for the US 4 x 1500 team, it would be Centro, Leo, Lopez and Wheating if they were all healthy and in form in my opinion.

It would be interesting though if they selected teams with a lot of thought as you might want guys who are good at time trialing in case the US loses contact with kenya up front.

it's gonna be fasicinating to watch. Does it get broken up right away? is the firs leg tacitcal? etc.

Not surprised Alberto is holding his runners out + not convinced any of them would make that much difference, but does anyone know why Symmonds and Jenny BS are skipping iit?


Yes, our article says Simpson is focusing on the DL. We talked to her agent. I tweeted at Symmonds but don't think he tweeted back.




Our top 4 is Solomon,
