2013 Cross Country
Obviously Mary Cain is phenomenal, but I will believe she can beat Sarah Baxter when I see her cross the finish line first...especially at 5k.
Let's not even start this debate. Cain is a different class of athlete, there's no contest.
To: 9:54 PM,Who says, "Let's not even start this debate. Cain is a different class of athlete, there's no contest."You are 'talking out of both sides of your face.'Let's not debate because I'M RIGHT so there is no debate.You would be more credible if you had just stated, "Cain is a different class of athlete, there's no contest."You are like those people who state THEIR opinion and then say END OF THREAD. Yes, YOUR OPINION IS THE THE ONLY ONE THAT COUNTS!I agree with one thing you said, "Cain is a different class of athlete." But I would add that that is only my opinion.
Mary Cain is a higher level of athlete and the chance of injury at the Nike mudfest is not negligible, so XC is out. She also is world class at mid distance on the track. Different focus.
Were they in the same "class" 11 months ago when Baxter beat Cain at NXN by 25 meters? After all, this is the girl who ran 16 minutes on the hills of Mt. Sac!! How many classes could possibly be above her at that distance? Not necessarily saying Baxter would end up beating her at NXN, but do you really think Cain would leave her in the dust? That there would be no contest at all as the article implies (and commenter at 9:54 stated). We're not talking 1500m. Baxter would very likely be in the game and it's too bad that we will not be able to see them compete in XC.
In Fall 2014, maybe they'll end up as college teammates or competitors? Guess we'll have to wait until then to see them "toe the line" - ah, patience.
