    Re: US Mens Marathon Trials Favorites

    I agree that Eddy Hellebuyck has an excellent chance. He's got way more big-race experience than most US runners. The trials will be tactical, and he can run a tactical race as fast as anyone.

    I attribute his success to his Q-Ray - one of his big sponsors.

    Of course, it's a sad commentary on the US marathon scene. Only five US men ran faster in 2003 than Paula Radcliffe.

    Eddy will make the team without drugs, he ran 2:12 and won a major marathon. Age is just a number....talent and hard work matter.

    Canada is pretty much the same country as America. You would expect them to have similar problems.

    Any American who has run under 2:12 in the last few years is pretty much a favorite.

    The Trials would be a good place to show the world US marathon running is not dead. Wouldn't it be great if at least a half dozen American's broke 2:12 at the Trials. Without KK there that is going to be quite a feat.

    Canada is probably experiencing similar problems to the USA. Including more competition from oversees, meaning up and comers have a harder time making a living and no recent home-grown success stories to encourage the youngsters.

    That and its feaking cold up there. I know, I know, its cold in Norway and Findland and they have produced top runner before.

    you wanna talk about bad mens running, take a look north of the border. i'm not sure we'd have a single runner qualify for the U.S. Olympic marathon trials. can anyone explain this?

    With KK out of the picture. This race become even more open for the dark horses to try and get in and with the new standards the US should send 3.

    Do any participants visit this board, if so please share your insight into what KK's absense means to how the race may develop.

    He will not make the team unless he has found some better drugs since then

    i dont know of another women who has qualified for the us mens trials, but look at how bad the situation is in once powerful great britain, i read paula radcliffe has the best marathon time in britain man or women with jon browne who is scheduled to run fukuoka on december 7 the only one in britain who might surpass her time. also for the us i think a darkhorse to make the team is eddy hullybeck he is 43, but just ran a 212 marathon, followed by a 105 half marathon 6 days later, he was the first american in boston in 217 2 days after running a 10k in new orleans, he is consistent, and races a lot.

    The sad thing is the qualifying times for the trials. A 2:22 and some change gets you into the trials. We are lucky that a US women doesn't qualify for the men's trials, how embarassing would be for our men marathoners.

    There is a Scott Larson with a 2:15 marathon in NYC in 2001 who has a qualifying time but no other Larson has a qualifier for the trials.

    What the heck ever happened to Jery Lawson?(former US marathon record holder) I Trained with him a-bit in New Zealand once, but never heard what happened to him. Did he just give up?
    Also I pick an Oregen project clean sweep in the trails.
