Kara has been having a tremendous year. It seems she has been responding to the training up here with the Farm Team and Salazar even better than Adam has.

Yeah, maybe that will motivate Adam ... I always thought he had more potential than has come out on the track ...

Real nice move for Kara ... Somethings working !!!

Yeah, I had thought Adam would have been there by now ... Actually I thought he'd be around 13:00 or better by now ...

He missed a lot of time with injuries. I'm actually surprised he's come back as far as he has. I thought his career was over 4 years ago.

I would guess it's similar, just: a) we're more familiar with the domestics, so we're more aware of their injuries, and b) the African countries (which basically are distance running) have so many more to draw from, we only hear the same name for a few years in many cases, then they fall by the wayside and are replaced by someone just as fast.

Agreed there - there are so many that can fill the shoes there and seemingly so few here - I remain hopeful though that the tide is turning a bit.
