    i think paula's odds just dropped thru the floor...
    Zhang is a junior and so, according to IAAF/IOC rules, cannot compete in the marathon in Beijing. It's senior athletes only.
    on the beijing marathon entry form last october it said all runners must be at least 18 years of age and at least a couple of the top women (all juniors) were not 18, but were allowed to compete.
    When I said 'marathon in Beijing', I was talking about the Olympic marathon.

    Contrary to the Xiamen marathon report, IAAF rules state that juniors cannot compete in the Olympic marathon.

      If the hosts petitioned for a waiver, what do you think the outcome would be? I'm guessing it would be a no-brainer acceptance.

      but since she, I believe, has 5 and 10 Q's, perhaps they'll be happy just to leave her on the track)
