Yes/No: Will Lehman PR at the Millrose Games?

A Minnesota native has won the last two Millrose Games women's mile races. Will 2010 be the third year in a row? Kara Goucher, the two-time defending champ in the race, is not running this year, but taking up the cause for Minnesotans everywhere will be former Minnetonka star Molly Lehman.

Let us know if you think Lehman will break her indoor P.R. on the 160 yard banked board track in Madison Square Garden:

Y/N: Will Molly Lehman run faster than 4:41.69 at the Millrose Games mile Friday night?

Molly Lehman's indoor P.R. is 4:41.69 from 2009. She capped a great career at Duke by running a school record 4:12.13 1500m to place 8th at USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships. To put the school record in perspective - it is over 2 seconds faster than Shannon Rowbury ever ran at Duke.

In high school, Lehman had the misfortune of competing during the glory years of Heather Dorniden and Elizabeth Yetzer. She never won an individual state title in high school but did anchor Minnetonka's 4 x 800 squad to three consecutive state titles; the Skippers still hold the all-time state record in that event.

To play our game, simply type "yes" or "no" into the subject line of an e-mail and send it to us at DtBFantasy [AT] gmail [DOT] com before 8:00 P.M. CST, Friday, January 29. Please put your answer in the subject line of the e-mail and make sure your full name appears somewhere in the e-mail. We will continue to offer a bonus for participants making their debut in Yes/No - a correct answer will be worth two points for any first-time players.

My answer: Yes

The question last week was: Will Kylie Peterson run faster than 7.48 in either the prelims or finals of the 60 Meters at the Jack Johnson Minnesota Classic? The correct answer was no - Peterson won the 60 meter dash in 7.51. Eleven contestants answered correctly and there are now nine players who own a perfect score so far this year. To see these results, please visit DtB Fantasy Corner.

Good luck and thanks for playing Yes/No on DtB!
