    As we all know, running at her level isnt done with smoke and mirrors.She works very, very hard. You lose training time and then you just cant compete. The guts she had to still go for it and still finish with the three bears and Liberace playing a grand piano on her back. OUCH!
    phsstt!

      As I saw her struggle at Pre, I truly expected a fast announcement that she is pregnant. Recently married, it made sense. Oh well, wrong guess .

        It won't really matter to some though. If she is in shape by the time the World Championships, there will be a lot of question marks and doubts rising again.

          Knew it was something like that. She's competing less than 3 month's after surgery....

            Of course, it turned out that the marriage was not that recent.

              I checked T&FN 2008 list and IAAF 2009 list. Kenya has only two women who have made the WCh "A" standard, so Jelimo has two months to prepare for WCh.

              I agree with previous postings that she should cut over gradually between the first 100 & 200 to save a fraction of a second there.

              In addition, I think that she should run no faster than 30 seconds for her first 200 until she is ready to run sub-1:58. Jim Ryun ran a world record of 1:44.9 for 880 yards in 1966 with splits of 53.3 and 51.6, so that strategy is possible.

              I hope that she has a conservative strategy through July and then has a chance to win WCh.
