Clearly an Ego fraud
RE: Steve Magness exploded against Almaz Ayana on twitter

Why doesn't someone ask him what he thinks is the fastest time someone should be allowed to run. His automatic accusations suggest a new rule--automatic disqualification to anyone who sets a world record, even if they have never failed a test.

Magness clearly has a chip on his shoulder and the inability to understand the sport at an elite level. Historically we do see jumps in women's distance records as we saw yesterday and in the marathon record.
We saw Ayana try a different tactic yesterday ,go hard from the start to bury any thought of a kickers race. Brilliant tactic and confidence in her fitness to do it.
Magness just has no understanding of elites outside of a book or chart. His verbal vomit of nonsense is just that.
This type of breakthrough will give a mindset for others that sub 30 is an achievable barrier. My guess is Molly has talked with her coach already plotting next year a shot at it.
