Argh!! ESPN cuts away from the women's 5000 to show previous events. Madeline was near the back of the lead pack of 12 or so runners halfway thru the race. When they cut back, Madeline was a DNF. Hopefully she didn't get hurt.

Great run by Emily, I think she would have been almost even with flood if she didn't have to go around the fla st runner who was fading on the inside lane.
Interesting that Emily mentioned in her flotrack interview after the race that she was going to run the 5k at the Oly trials--i'm a little surprised that she doesn't try the 1500 again as she was 5th last year the the USA meet and certainly showed to be competitive for the win at the NCAA meet. I don't think she will be as competitive in the 5K unless it is a tactical race, as she was dropped the last time she raced against the pro's + top collegians in a big 5K in the spring.

Yes, I think Emily suffered a loss of momentum being boxed in like that on the rail. If only...
Track and Field News has Emily 9th in the 5000m. But I think the race in the spring was one, where Emily had been sick, I think she and Coach Milt have been pointing towards the OT all year, so whatever the 1500 or 5000, I think she will give it a good shot. But, yes, she was 5th last year at the nationals and would have given that a good shot. Incidentally, Track and Field News has Liz Maloy 9th at the trials in the 1500m. I would have though Liz would have entered the 5000m and Emily the 1500m.
