  • Why isn't Wheating in the London mile?

    Register-Guard reported a few weeks back that Wheating was running a few races in Europe and was in the London mile. Don't see him on the list. Anybody know why?

    Unless he has turned pro early and has an agent, getting into races in Europe is both expensive and problematic.

      The story in Register-Guard linked here (which I can't get to open now for some reason; I could when it was first posted) says that we was in and going: http://www.letsrun.com/forum/flat_read. ... 181&page=0

        The key may be this from that story <<The good news for Wheating is that if he can show that he is completely healthy over the next few days, he can still get into some European meets.>> And the story was dated June 30.

            The Hausers ran at least one European 10K while they were still at Stanford and Russell Brown and Garrett Heath ran PBs over there a couple summers ago.
            Michael Coe (Berkeley) ran a 3K in Belgium a couple weeks ago as well.
            It's not impossible, and would be far easier as an Olympian I imagine.

              He's talking about Golden League races.

                i spoke to him at dinner tuesday night. he wants to run in europe for experience but being 100% healthy and fit is part of the decision. he did not know if he would go or not.

                    I suppose if one can get into GL races they have no business being in the NCAA. They should be getting paid.
