Lee Troop going for 4th Olympic Marathon Team

Post  Tim M on Thu Jun 23, 2011 12:17 pm

Lee Troop is an Australian, currently living and coaching some elites in Boulder, CO.

Next weekend, Lee is running the Gold Coast Airport Marathon in Australia. He needs to run a qualifying time to make his fourth Olympic marathon. He is being paced by Jason Hartmann and Pat Rizzo, two of the guys he coaches.

Rizzo was telling me about their pacing requirements. They have little room for error or they don't get paid. They also cannot run past 30KM. Any further and they don't get paid.

So, will Hartmann and Rizzo actually meet the pacing requirements and get paid?

Will Lee Troop join Rob de Castella and Steve Moneghetti as the only Aussies to have participated in four Olympic marathons?

Will they meet the pacing requirements? I don't know depends on how on much they are going to get paid to meet those requirements. Also if it looks like they won't hit those requirements what is stopping them from them trying to cash in on prize money from the race.

Then again maybe they will meet them and stick to the rules since he is their coach.

Hey Tim, do you know Pat Rizzo? Because if you do, since we are friends and you have spent time here at my house I guess I could say that I know Pat Rizzo also. Basketball Basketball Basketball
