OK so a bit of background. Keely Small has been a cross country phenom since she was younger - like 9-10. Top 2 at nationals - there was a Sydney girl she always tussled with. She is from Canberra, and the story goes that she was talent spotted when younger and has been training at the Australian Institute of Sport since about 10.
I can't say what sort of mileage she's been on since young, but the 800 times are a surprise. I'd have expected her to be more of a 1500-3km runner.
Even if she has been training more like an adult, I can't see why her times won't continue to drop. I'm sure she can improve her 400 time, for example. In fact, to drop her 800 time, that's what she would need to focus on. Her 400 to 800 conversion is very good.
In that 2.01 race on the weekend, Keely knocked off the National senior champion. She also knocked 0.3 off the National U18 record. It was held be Georgie Clarke, who still holds the Australian U16 record - 2.02.49 as a 14yo. Georgie never got any better though - suffered years of injuries after her phenomenal times at 14-16. She ran a 4.06 1500 when aged 15.
