the American record which may take a long time to break. Flanagan's Beijing time was the previous American record set 8 years ago over 9 seconds slower. With the speed and heat she held up in the fastest 10k race in women's history to get 6th. Considering this new wolrd record holder will run the 5k it was a good decision for Molly to focus on one race.


She beat her PR by almost 35 seconds which she set 2 years

ago in Palo Alto. Her 10k time in Eugene to win the Olympic Trials was almost 90 seconds slower (31.41.62).


She'll be the bronze medalist before the next Olympics *

That was just too fast to be believed. Molly said, "These places may be mobile."

Also, there is plenty of evidence that PEDs are rampant among the Kenyans. I don't know about the Ethiopians.

Yesterday, some dumb-ass Kenyan coach showed up to submit a urine sample in place of one of his athletes, using that athlete's credentials, and got caught, thankfully. He was sent home, and I hope the athlete was disqualified.


Ethiopia is just as bad

Ok, they do not have coaches attempting to pass as athletes


You may be right...she was 4th in 2015 at Worlds at the 10k.

Still I wonder if she will start focusing on the marathons.


I should have been more clear: am saying 3 of the 5 ...
