Btw, I checked the last year's seedings cut-offs for Australian 25k-s in Sept-Oct, it was like 300+ everywhere. Is there any reason it should be different this year..
A few reasons. First of all, Australia has a history of putting 25s in the most obscure and isolated locations such as Port Pirie where travel costs are more expensive then just getting to Australia so they are less popular. This tournament is in Perth, a big city with a large airport and is therefore quite accessible from Europe. To add to this, there are 2 50Ks this year in a row in the same place meaning that this is a good lead up. They are the reasons why I think they will be stronger. And the Priorities indicate that.
I agree that Tinjic is winnable but she is in decent form and just 3 days ago Anett barely got passed a much lower ranked Italian... Still, it is very possible for Anett to reach that final
