        Nothing happened. She played her cards right as she'll still get into the NCAA Championships as all she needed to do was place in the top 5.

          Hopefully, she is training through this, as she can't really afford to be too sharp if she's going to peak in Sacramento. I don't know if she's planning to double at Austin. That might not be a smart move, in order to avoid a big crash (getting sick or something). But she sure was killer at the SEC meet.

            Ritzenhein, for example, did a 20x300m workout 3 days before his race. He and his coach planned on a top-5 finish, not necessarily the victory.

              Also, she ran 4:16/2:02 in her prelims, both much faster than she needed to.

                I have a couple picture from the 1500m race on my site here:

                Hopefully I'll have some of the 800m race up later.

                  20x300M ! Ye Gods! Are those moronic coaches still grinding their athletes into the track with their 1950's era training schedules?

                  How can an athlete go to a race fresh after such mind-numbing, mechanical training sessions? Do they think that the Africans are doing this kind of nonsense?

                  These idiots need to read Percy Cerutty's books again, assuming that such coaches can actually read.

                      It was a decision that was pretty much in the works pre-Regionals, but she is not entered in the 800 for Nationals, just the 1500.

                      Women's declarations are here (with the "medical pending" stricture of course, since Veronica Campbell is missing)
