The Yes/No Contest will continue its international theme with this week's question. Last week we followed a race in Nanning, China and now it's on to Morocco and the Casablanca Marathon. The race is in its third year and features a flat course and generally good running weather.
Team USA-Minnesota's Michelle Frey is heading all the way to North Africa to chase an 'A' qualifier of 2:38 to the 2012 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials. Let us know how fast you think she will run...
Y/N: Will Michelle Frey run faster than 2:40:00 at the Casablanca International Marathon on Sunday?
Michelle Frey has been active in 2010. She competed in the USA Championships for 15k, 10 Mile and Half Marathon this year. She also won the Cowtown Half Marathon and ran 2:42 at the Boston Marathon.

My answer: Yes
The fantasy contest question from last week was: Will Antonio Vega or Andrew Carlson finish in the top twenty of the IAAF World Half Marathon Championships? The answer was no. Vega missed the top twenty by three places and eleven seconds. Carlson finished in 39th place. Nine contestants answered correctly this week and eight of the top nine in the overall standings were wrong this week. Toby Hatlevig moved into a tie for third with his correct answer.
