  • Accurate Reporting

    This was discussed earlier, but Stanford CID is back at it again:

    "In women's competition, Alicia Craig ran a 15:31.15 while Sara Bei ran 15:26.21 in the 5,000 meters to both qualify for the NCAA Regionals. Bei's previous best time was 16:03.08 at last year's Mt. Sac Relays. Bei's time was also third-best in school history."

    This is the second time in less than a month they have misreported 5,000m facts on their site. The last time it centered around Alicia Craig:

    "In the women's 5,000 meters, Alicia Craig gained All-America honors for a seventh time at Stanford with a second place in 15:45.08. Craig's time was just short of her school record time of 13:43.04 set last year. Kim Smith of Providence overpowered the field in a time of 15:14.18."

    Gabe must be beating that drum a little too hard each time the CID is in the middle an athletics article.

    Why even bother complaining about this, at the TCU invite they ran the wrong number of laps in the womens 5k. I remember looking up and seeing 10 laps to go and an elapsed time of 2:30 seconds and thinking to myself that can't be correct. I was't brave enough to yell that they must of messed up the laps. The next day saw it correctly reported as a 4600 meter race.
