RE: Alright why did SARA Hall bomb at LA?
Based on the weather, it is likely (but not certain) her cramps were caused by a salt/electrolyte imbalance. Toni Reavis commented early on she appeared to be having difficulty in getting her fluid bottles and taking water at various points in the race. Her cramps could have been a result of improper training or other potential causes, but considering the weather, she was likely sweating out salt, potassium, etc. faster than she was replacing it, hence the cramps. I saw her finish on TV and she looked like she was in agony as she slowly made her way in.
