    Re: 2013 WCów1500: Buckmn leads semis at 4:04.82, Cain in

    Women's finals tend to be less jog and kick, so Cain perhaps won't have to spend a lot of time in lane 2. A faster pace spreads the field out nicely. If Cain has relatively smooth footing after the...

    Re: ∂2013 WC--m400: Merritt 43.74 (WL, 5, x W)

    When an Olympic champion falls to 7th place it is completely valid for fans of the sport to wonder why that happened.


    And there can be such a thing as a post-Olympic let-down. If so, it usually...

    Can't help but think a lot of Solomon adopting the fast front-running strategy (in practice first, then domestic US meets) is to prepare him to face Rudisha. [Much comes from...

    Oh, no - I'm not saying it's the *only* reason. But it's *a* reason.

    I mean, it's pretty clear that KJ came through the 300m too faster for his fitness, due to LM's superior foot speed as a...

    If she and Aston both win it would be historic.

    Ain't that the truth! I hope Chris Derrick and others follow Rupp & Ritz's lead and turn this from a short term blip to a longer term trend. I also wonder if Ryan Hall will regain the form he showed...

    Too bad none of these marks can be records because there wasn't a rail or correctly sized cones set up.

    Certainly Jim Ryan may have run sub-4 on a high school track sometime during his HS career...?

    Went sub-4 at state; where did Kansas hold their state meet? Lawrence/KU...?

    Re: World 10K (from the front page)

    Agree with this, but Ngugi actually "stole" the race [to those who just came in, the valid term for the tactic].

    Right around the 1km. mark, Ngugi threw in a 57-second 400--going from far back in...
