This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

My tv got screamed at for that very reason by NDoggie78
I've always seen the lapped runners move over. I think you should have the option of bumping them off the track like roller derby.
As you say, the 2nd lane would actually be about 10,150 meters (using lane marking, not center of lane)
If you convert her time to 10,000 meters (1st lane), it would be just under 32 minutes and would have won.
Of course the same argument could have been made for the other runners, because even the winner wasn't in the 1st lane the whole race.
She may have been better served to have moved inside either by passing or dropping back (which runs the risk of getting boxed in) - especially at that distance
