    Dan --

    To what do you attribute the nearly complete lack of US competitors in this meet? Is this something done by design, as with Euro basketball teams, or is it just by chance that Eric Thomas is the only American in the field of a GP II meet? Seems odd.

    Surely not everyone is competing in Palo Alto/Portland.

      Hell of a performance in the women's 5K, especially since she must have run the last several laps alone:

        She was aiming at the Chinese women:s national record.

          It's simple economics. GP II meets, as a rule, don't have big budgets. Can't afford to fly Americans in across the pond, and if they did they'd then have no prize money to give out. Name pros will (rightfully) be expecting both.

          Unless there's an American who has a solid base of operations in Europe already and can cut down on travel costs, not going to see many of them at this time of year in small meets like this.

            is this the most going-to-go-this-summer women's record of all? (besides the obvious one - PV; OK, and maybe steeplechase too)?
