Alberto Salazar Dishes on Mary Cain at the USA Indoor, and Whether She Will Run in College
By Ken Goe, The Oregonian
Alberto Salazar has teenage running prodigy Mary Cain slotted into the 800 meters at the USA Indoor Championships for a reason.
The three-day meet begins Friday in the Albuquerque Convention Center. The 16-year-old Cain will be mixing it up with post-collegians Chanelle Price, Lea Wallace and former Washington star Katie (Follett) Mackey, who now runs for Brooks, as well as 2012 world junior champion Ajee Wilson.
Not that Cain will be overwhelmed. She has the fastest seed time in the field and is wrapping up an indoor season in which she broke U.S. high school records that had stood for decades in the 1500 (twice), the Mile (twice), the 3000 and two Miles.
