Still in Sight Rio110
Shalane Flanaghan (USA) had done brilliantly to hang with the best of the best through the first 30 kilometers of the race. She had trained for the expected push had that point in the race and had hung tough. But when the push came again at 35 K, she just didn't have enough left to go with the surge. As the five pushed on she managed to keep them in sight, finishing the day in sixth on the day.
