NEW YORK (USA): RRW informs that Kara Goucher, the 2008 USA 5000m champion, said that although she was named to the USA team for the marathon for the IAAF World Championships in Daegu, competing in that discipline is actually her second choice. "I will compete in the 10,000m at the USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships," she wrote on her blog at Competitor.com "If I'm able to qualify for the World Championships in that event, I'll run it, and skip the marathon, passing my marathon slot to current alternate Zoila Gomez. If I don’t qualify, I'll go ahead and run the marathon."
