Bob Martin, in the event preview for the W 5000, lists Svetlana Kireyeva as one of the "top two runners not from those countries" (Kenya and Ethiopia, of course), with a time of 15:08.36. Well, she has that time, but finished only 8th at Cheboksary and is NOT on the Russian team. What do these guys do, just look at the IAAF Top Lists, without regard to who is ENTERED? Olga Golovkina and Yelena Nagovitsyna are the Russian entrants. Golovkina won the Euros.
