for perspective newbalance outdoor mile 2001 w frazier as soph did beat cain who was a frosh
w frazier is really distance 3k/5k type won the 5k at the meet in 2011
Was waiting for that!! WOW!! First, Tirinesh Dibaba is something ELSE!! On her own for the last 11 laps, she runs NEGATIVE splits (4:39 and 4:34), with a 65 final 400 (440??)! She is STRONG, in GREAT shape, and probably could get the indoor record (2 miles) with better competition.
As for Mary Cain, what more can one say? PHENOMENAL!! As the announcer said towards the end of the race, "she's 16, but she runs more like she's 26!!". So true, so true!! She's shattering HIGH SCHOOL records left and right, and is just an 11th grader, but she RUNS like she's a NATIONAL class runner!! Maybe not ready to medal in the USATF, or make the team this year for the WC, but she'd definitely be able to make the US finals....in the 1500...or 5000!!
I hope she runs a 5K outdoors...maybe at Mt SAC or Stanford. TOTALLY impressed with her run!!
I've followed T&F for over 50 years, and had read every word of T&FN, but up till he started coaching Cain, I'd never heard of Henwood!!
As to Mary running a 5K or 10K this spring outdoors, if not at Mt SAC or Stanford, she could do what Cayla Hatton did last year....hop into a college men's 10K in a small college meet somewhere!! Her time of 33:17 is listed in Jack Shepard's HS Track this year as the 2nd fastest HS girls 10K ever. If Shepard sees that mixed race, collegiate race as okay for record purposes, the same would go for Cain. That way, she wouldn't have to travel very far....just go to the nearest college and convince the people there to let her into the race!!
interesting cuffe anchor was a 73, while cain can go mid 60 range, cain has a huge edge with her kick as she can nail 8 seconds or so
im smelling a good chance to get the 2 mile mark
Cuffe ran very even pace in that race, which is the optimal strategy for minimizing time. If Cain runs even pace to her maximum effort, she is not going to suddenly go 8 seconds faster on her last lap. At that point she was running for time, not racing for place, where she would have a faster finish (but slower overall time). [Cuffee's last 440 yards was 73.41, about 73.0 for 400m]
missed this from 26m235 the girls from illinois, i dont know where she went to school, pushed the pace very early, helping cuffe get a hotpace
kayla beattie i see went to iowa but redshirted 2012, and i have not seen a 2013 result for her
