      With Lane 9 available, it was a pretty easy call.

        Good thing they left one lane available. I wouldn't want to have two runners in one lane like in the women's NCAA 800 final.

          Agree. Hurta was already on the inside and wasn't trying to go out, but Green ended up in lane one. Cut in.

            I thought Green the offender as well.

                I learned that stuff while going through the immigration process at multiple levels: student visa, work visa, green card, and ultimately US citizenship. 18 years total.

                Being from Jamaica, with everything already in English I didn't personally have to get any certified document translations, but there were instructions in the paperwork about doing that for foreign-language documents, and conversations with other immigrants who had to get the translations.

                Immigration hassles also cause some married women to avoid changing their last name if they got married during or shortly before starting the immigration process. Some eventually do the name change upon obtaining their green card or citizenship, but others just end up keeping their maiden name permanently, especially those who had a very long immigration process.

                  I looked at it again an Hurta was trying to move inside to outside and tripped. So it wasn't Green's fault.

                    She will just go through life, "That's Athing MO, spelled M-U." Not a big deal, as the world gets smaller we are all having to figure out how to pronounce names we've never heard before. Gone are the days of living in a little hamlet all your life with the Smiths and Joneses.

                      Mu looked like she was running a series of 800m repeats and she was on the 2nd of 4 just easing through it.

                      Having said that, I'm not sure Agee doesn't end up across the line first.

                        Watch the head on shot as they come around with about 130 to go, Green is running right on the outside line of lane one, Hurta on the inside. Within six or seven steps Green is running almost on the rail. That's not holding your line, that's cutting in. Hurta had to try to move to the outside, she was being cut off.

                          She is distinctive looking and now semi-famous; I'll guess her life won't be that bad.

                            With her braid, she bears a resemblance to Surya Bonaly, if anyone remembers that name. (She appears to be quite a bit more personable than Surya, though.)

                              That is how it appeared to me, although you seemed to look into it more closely than I did (a couple of replays).

                                A bit of a tangent, but the California Medical Board used to require that you have a certified document translation of your medical degree if it was in Latin. Like they didn't already have certified transcripts, letter of certification from your school, specialty boards, residency, etc.
