OK, hereâ€™s the key thing to remember:
Morgan Uceny has to run three races to earn an Olympic Gold Medal.
But she only has to win one.
As much as everyone in Plymouth wanted to see the 2003 PHS graduate sweep through her preliminary race of the womenâ€™s 1,500-meter run in London Monday morning, the fact is: the only race that really matters is the one for the championship Friday night.
So, Ucenyâ€™s second-place finish in round one Monday was fine, just fine. She advances to Wednesdayâ€™s semifinals, scheduled to start at 2:45 p.m. (EDT).
