It's great to see that despite being unranked, Jamie has made it into the qualy field for next week's 25K in Rock Hill, SC, thanks to her national ranking. If she can make it to the MD, she'll have a ranking again. Good luck, Jamie!
No points for qualy matches in 25Ks; she'd have to actually qualify for the MD to win 1 point as a Qualifier -- which I think she can do, unless she gets a particularly unfriendly Q draw. But with that 1 point she'd get a ranking, since that would make 3 events she's earned points in.
I wish we had some more recent pics! Jamie would probably cringe to see that old pic if she's much fitter now. On the other hand, it might make her proud of herself that she's whipped herself into great shape since those days.
Rock Hill MD for jamie:
(8)Sacha Jones (NZL) v (Q)Claire De Gubernatis (FRA)
(Q)Marina Giral Lores (VEN) v (wc)Jamie Hampton (USA)
(Q)Grace Min (USA) v (wc)Anna Mamalat (USA)
(2)Sharon Fichman (CAN) v (wc)Alexandra Mueller (USA)
(wc)Albanese/Hampton (USA) v (Q)De Gubernatis/Schoeffel (FRA)
(3)Couts/Lee-Waters (USA) v Alvarez-Teran/Giral Lores (BOL/VEN)
and is it possible to make this just a jamie thread since ashley has a thread already?
