NOP is about taking advantage of any technological edge available, and treating anything not explicitly illegal as within the limits of the rules. That's the polar opposite of the "blue collar"...

I thought Ethiopia's 10000m team was Burka, Heroye and Oljira. Why is Defar favored to win the gold?
Edris made the...

I think the idea behind icing is to temporarily restrict blood circulation to induce even more blood flow after the restriction is removed. So the recovery actually happens as you "recover" from...
They missed the decisive moves of both Coburn and Jager. They need to understand that the middle of a steeple race is not the best time to insert commercial breaks. For that matter, there is no need...

1. Centro in 1500m. Total dominance and textbook execution.
2. Felix in 400m. Very impressive come from behind victory.
3. Prandini in 200m.
Haven't watched men's and women's 5000m and...

That was an 800+700 race.
And he dropped anyone but Lagat with his gradual increase of pace.
Centro did not drop other runners until 1400. He took a glance before the final turn, and said "Is...

Simpson is usually the one who pushes the pace. But she was testing a new tactics because her berth on the team was secure. Hopefully, she will get back to her old self in the trial next year.
He was suffering from illness, and missed a DL race in Oslo after running poorly in Birmingham. So I assume he missed significant training.
Since he is not competing in Beijing, I hope he can...

Umm... this was definitely NOT an 1100+400 race. It was a 900+600 race. Centro made it sure that it will not turn into an 1100+400 race. Even you recognize that in the very next sentence.

Are we allowed to discuss any runner other than Cain on this thread? ;)
Gallagher, Johnson and Schneider do not have the standard. And unlike Manzano and Andrews, they never ran faster than the...
When D'Agostino ran 15:40s in April, I thought she had no chance to make the team. Then, she hit the standard a few weeks ago. And now this. Truly amazing turn around.

Because there is no World Junior to qualify for this year?
For me, this is a good enough reason not to abolish death penalty.
Just the thought that Dylan Roof could possibly escape the prison makes me want him executed.

Oslo DL was not boring because Laura Muir had a different idea on how a mid-d race could be run. That was highly entertaining.
That seems to be the case, according to the (white) kid who was videotaping the incident.
Of course, there...
When I saw the thread title, I though people were discussing how historic his throw was. #9 all-time, first African over 90m, etc.
How wrong I was...
The "voice over" guy is totally clueless. He said "300m steeplechase" and "the last three laps of 500m." Not only he does not know that 300m steeple and 500m races do not exist, apparently he isn't...
"Sometimes when you're using a meet to replace a workout, you can add some extra running to the races, making the day a full-blown workout." (Daniels' Running Formula. 2nd ed. p.79).

Japan is losing many potential sprinters to baseball and soccer. By the time they reach 15/16, their baseball/soccer coach would tell them to stop competing in track. So many top sprinters at the...
I really hope she isn't. Not because I don't like her. I think it will be too much too soon. It will be harder to make the Olympic team next year, since Simpson will not have the wild card. If...
Not so fast. True just beat Sambu (among other people) in NYC 10k road. I think Rupp is a lock. That means two more spots for True, Estrada, Mead and Derrick (who still does not have the standard),...

And before leaving Oregon, she left Salazar for Schumacher.
Simpson trained in Colorado Springs with Julie Benson for a few years before returning to Boulder.
I was more excited to see Jenny Simpson winning the World title than anything Cain has done. But maybe I am too weird.
When Ajee Wilson turned pro after high school. pundits on this board speculated on how lack of frequent racing might hurt her growth as a runner. Well, you may want to ask her now how that has turned...
