      Bowman stated to Price yesterday that Bowman was complacent on her DM leg, but suggested she would improve as the Penn Relays rolled along. Excellent to see they pulled together and broke a previous world best.

            IF addition in my head is accurate, Bowman was 4th at 12:58.1, behind Washington at 12:57.4, Villanova at 12:57.1 and Georgetown at 12:54.4.

            Bowman doesn't seem to be a good leader, so having runners to pace her is ideal. Not much is happening in women's 1500 for the U.S. now. Perhaps Bowman will make the WCh team.

            This race is the best argument for 4 x 1500 at the OG/WCh IMHO.
            none

              4x1500 at OG/WC? That would be the end of my fandom.

                Why?

                Are sprinters the only ones allowed to team up on relays and win multiple medals?

                  Not sure I understand where you are coming from. Couldn't you make the same argument for a any 10,000 or 5000 race?

                    Has something changed since her 4.36 mile in all-high school competition a few years back, to which she had this to say?

                    Pretty much. I wanted to go out and set a good solid pace from the beginning. That is what I prefer to do. I knew that if I wanted to hit a good time, someone was going to [have to] step up and lead the group. A lot of people like to hang back. Sometimes, the times are not as good as you would have wanted. If you want to hit a good time, you have to go and set the pace. So, I just went out like that and did what I like to do. I really did not know too much about Brie Felnagle. Basically, the day before I had heard that she really likes to hold back and kick at the end, which is different from me. I had a little bit of warning about who was going to do what and how people ran. It went pretty much how I would have wanted it to.
                    She's strong (9.20,43i) and quick (57,69 400m last year). Seems like she can run at either the front end or chasing down someone.

                      TN last year at Penn:

                      Wright 4.24,3 (-4,8s this year)
                      Bell 4.22,9 (-3,9s this year)
                      Bowman 4.15,2 (-5,0s this year)
                      Price ran 7,2s faster than TN lead-off last year.

                      Total team effort on all accounts.

                        Bowman led for a couple of laps at Tyson, but finished 5th in 4:34.69 a PR but not as good as her 1500 PR of 4:07.5 at the 2008 NCAA Outdoor (where she followed Kipyego & Felnagle) while Felnagle was 3rd in 4:32.17. At the NCAA Indoor Bowman followed Kipyego & ran 4:29.72 while Felnagle ran 4:37.0.

                        At the NCAA X/C Felnagle was 4th in 19:53.3 while Bowman was 36th in 20:39.5, so Felnagle is the stronger runner. Both have run 2:04x for 800.

                        I had hoped that Bowman would have used the strength that she has shown at PennR by pushing the pace at OT, but she ran 4:17.48 (heat) 4:13.29 (semi) and 4:16.4 (final). Her pace was 69.01, 67.89, 67.13 & 52.51.

                        I know that her best races are when she follows a fast, even pace. I don't know if she can follow and kick in a slow race because she ran 69.28 while Rowbury ran 61.28 last 400 at the OT.
                        none

                          It wouldn't be the end of my fandom, but please save us from ever having to witness such a mickey mouse event at International Championships...

                            Excellent set of stats and supportive argument, Gleason. I would like to propose the following with respect to Bowman's OT: She had a monstrous semi-final kick if I recall correctly, and was the only collegiate finalist. I think she spent herself getting to the final. She ran a seven-second (plus) personal best just two weeks before the OT, and then had to run tough in Eugene. This followed a tough xc, indoor and outdoor schedule leading up to that point.

                            Hopefully she'll lead more this outdoor season. ;-)

                              I wonder who'd win at the WCs? Russia for Gold, Ethiopia for silver. Wonder who'd get bronze?
