Impressed with Kate Grace, Austin Tamagno, and Jackson Mestler. Solid results for Jenkins and Centro and Hassan. Slightly disappointing results for Alexa Efraimson and Grace Ping.
How was Ping's effort a disappointment to you?[/quote]
Conversion says she should have run faster based on her 16:36 road 5k. She was still only a couple seconds off the world record.[/quote]
OK but how many 13 year old girls are really vying for the 3k indoor wr, and are getting the chance of running in a very competitive race? Seems like it might be a soft record. Yes, 9:43 is insane for a 13 year old, but maybe not so insane for Grace Ping.[/quote]
Compared to the outdoor record, it is soft. 941 to 927.
Jordan Hasay ran 935 at usatf 13-14 but she was probably 14.
