Fighting off the Hayward Hecklers

Normally, a track athlete wouldn't worry much about a negative crowd reaction. But this is Hayward Field, in Track Town USA, where Friday's attendance was 4,000 more than the listed capacity of 16,350. So Shalane Flanagan, a University of North Carolina grad, thought about how to deal with a crowd that would overwhelmingly favor her prime rival, Kara Goucher, who trains in Eugene, in the 10,000 meters.
