RE: Shannon Rowbury Breaks American - Runs 14:38.92 in Brussels!
I agree that medals are more impressive than times and records.

But when you scroll through the posts on this board, there is a real double standard that people like to use to take athletes down a peg after they've done something remarkable: with a runner like Rowbury, someone swoops in to say "well, no medals," while with a runner like Centro, someone swoops in to say "well, it was a slow time," or "well, he got beat in Monaco that time."

What gives?
