Paula has run 2:17 numerous times. She ran 2:17 yesterday despite cramping and without pacing. She would've had a shot at 2:15 without cramping and with male pacemakers, like she did when she ran 2:15.

In any case not being able to duplicate previous performances happens to most all runners. What about Paula Radcliffe who ran 2:15 in London, then dropped out at 2:26 pace in Athens. Now she ran 2:17 in London again. Do you find that strange?
The problems that occurred in Ma's camp and the reasons it fell apart are VERY well known.
What problems occurred in Ma's camp? I'm not aware of them.
