    again my apologies, i was probably a little sleepy dopey when i read that, then i saw cheat and defar in the same sentence and immediately was like this cant be so as a fan i defended her before i read the post correctly, again my mistake i am sorry.

    Of course I was referring to Jacobs :roll: I don't understand how you could have read it wrong because I didn't say that Smith ran under Defar's record anyway.

    Besides which, you post on quite a lot of forums that I post on so surely you know I'm a fan of Defar. :?

    Yes, she followed Defar home underneath The Cheat's world record. As the poster above said, she has a real ability to run indoors and when she ran 14:50 in Boston a few yrs ago, I don't think she had run inside 15-mins outdoors![/quote

    WHAT DO YOU MEAN THE CHEATS WORLD RECORD????? are you saying defar is a cheater?????

    you are just about always, a very reliable poster, what do you base your belief on that defar is a cheater???? did something come up today????

    as a major fan of defar, and the etrhiopian girls, if these allegations are true, i will be a very heartbroken fan, if you can back up these allegations please do though, if you really dont have any basis for this allegation, then why the bitterness towards meseret defar?????????????
    I could be wrong, but I think the reference was definitely not to Defar, but rather to R. Jacobs.

    Ummm, doug? I don't think nevets is referring to Defar somehow! :lol:

    I think you may get a clue as to whom he's talking about from looking at the indoor marks on the all time list linked above.

    Edit: I was completely wrong! ops: I'd forgotten that Ms Jacobs had held the record, although she did that when I was paying much less attention to international athletics.

    Btw, fantastic running from Kim Smith. I love her; she's a gutsy runner, always my favourite kind.

    I was at the Armory today, and my story is linked to the front page of TrackShark.com and includes the splits.

    Anyone have more details on the race? Splits? Whether or not she had anyone running with her for any part of the race? The results ed gee posted suggest a solo performance, but I would be interested to know if anyone ran with her for any part of the race. Also, I assume she must have spent a good bit of the race lapping runners. It's a great performance in any case, but if it was totally a solo effort, and if she spent much time lapping runners, then it seems she's prepared right now to go quite a bit faster.

    Her PR's:
    http://www.iaaf.org/athletes/biographie ... index.html

    Outdoor

    1500 Metres 4:11.25 Waltham, MA 26/06/2004
    2000 Metres 5:47.10 Hamilton, NZL 13/01/2007
    3000 Metres 8:35.31 Monaco 25/07/2007
    5000 Metres 14:45.93 Roma 11/07/2008
    10,000 Metres 30:35.54 Palo Alto, CA 04/05/2008
    10 Kilometres 32:18 New York 09/06/2007

    Indoor
    One Mile 4:24.14 Boston (BU), MA 08/02/2008
    3000 Metres 8:38.14 Boston (Roxbury), MA 27/01/2007
    Two Miles 9:13.94 Boston (Roxbury), MA 26/01/2008
    5000 Metres 14:39 NYC

    So her Indoor Mile is superior to her outdoor 1500 PR (though the 1500 is a little dated, from 2004). Her 3000m PRs are pretty similar with outdoor getting the nod (does the indoor 2M convert to a faster 3000m?). And her 5000m race today surpassed her 14:45 outdoor PR from last year...

    Re: Kim Smith to No.4 all-time in the 5000

    Kim Smith has a real knack for running indoors. She ran 14:50 indoors at BU three years ago which was then the fifth fastest performance/fourth fastest performer at the time. But the big deal about that race (if I remember correctly) was she ran the entire race solo! No rabbits, and second place was a minute or two back.
