Nah. it's the spikes.Yup.
Tops her pb by 3.5 at 30?!
I hate to rain on the parade but if it were a non Irish runner we'd all be calling goofballs.
Don't get me wrong..history is instructive. It's always a possibility but in this case her performance is within what is now normal for this event.
The spikes are worth 2-4 seconds a race in the 1500m. New Balance have clearly closed the gap on Nike. With Whiteman, McLoughlan, Garcia, Mageean all going well.
Irish athletes are seldom in evening sessions in rabbited races and they had the wave lights. Getting into Diamond leagues is part performance part who your agent is. She probably isnt there without Euro Silver.
She didnt solo it. There was a pack ahead of her so she just kept moving up.
Shes had a great season going 1:58 in the 800m
Yeah. Maybe PEDs. Only she knows that. But i think its the shoes and an athlete in her prime
