    Thanks for the link, Master403...interesting info up to 2018, but no info for 2019.

    Tandfman, thanks for the 2019 info. I imagine he is dealing with injury or whatever as he doesn't seem to be...

    Austin Tamagno update.

    I know Austin Tamagno went to Oregon a couple of years ago but haven't heard much from him. He wasn't on Oregon's cross-country team this season and I don't remember him doing anything for Oregon in...

    I competed for BYU in cross-country over 50 years ago so was excited that they did so well in Terra Haute.

    Coach Eyestone made history as his men took the team title as the only one to win an...

    If Gidey really did a 44:20 15K, then we should expect that she could be one to lower the 29:17 track WR this coming track season. Will be interesting to see.

    I hope she does, but it is unlikely.

    The only way I would consider that time legit would be if she did it on the track. Road and cross-country courses vary so much that making comparisons is only valid for course records. And even that...
  8. Hard to believe the 44:20 15K by Letesenbet Gidey.

    Pardon my ignorance, but was the 44:20 15K WR by Letesenbet Gidey on the road, cross-country or track?

    Apparently not on a track because I don't believe she (or anyone else right now) could run...

    Pre Nats at Terre Haute.

    Being a BYU grad and one who ran cross-country at BYU I was pleased to see Coach Eyestone (men) and Taylor (women) do so well in some very competitive races.

    You can check Flotrack for the...

    Agreed. And, another thought...maybe he should look at going to the 3000m/5000m distances now.

    Hope Houlihan can stay healthy thru the OG next year...she is a great talent. She ran 3:54.99 in a year when she was injured much of the time. And she could run an AR in the 3,000m if she gets in a...

    My prediction...Houlihan will medal (bronze) Simpson will not. Hassan gold, Kipyegon silver, Hiltz 7th. I hope I'm wrong about Simpson and Hiltz.

    Lomong is in the shape of his life...he could upset with a medal. A recent 13:00+ 5000m and strong finishing speed indicate that he will be in the fight for the podium.

    Never thought we'd ever see only one USA women in the 100m final at WC and at 11.19.

    After seeing Coleman's 9.76, I think he will get the silver in the 200.

    I've been an avid track fan for over 60 years and I've never been aware of a distance runner who tried to pass an opponent by running inside the track.

    Does anyone really think he was purposely running inside the track for some advantage? He either lost his balance or was pushed off most likely.

    But I have to agree with the letter of the law...

    Why in the world would it be agreed upon to hold the WC in a place like Doha...I'm guessing it's mostly all about money...the athletes be damned.

    Nice win by Joshua Thompson in Berlin.

    A while back I predicted that Joshua Thompson would do well as a pro athlete and his strong finish 3rd place at the USATF meet showed promise. Then noticed today that he went to the Berlin meet and...

    I agree...if they don't and it gets tactical, Lomong has a good chance to sneak in for a medal. And, even in a sub 27:00 pace, I'm not so sure that Lomong can be counted out to challenge the...

    I wish Lopez Lomong was in the 5000m. Love to see what he could do right now in a fast paced 5000m. Makes me wonder why he apparently isn't racing again since USATF's until Doha. You'd think he'd...

    Men's 1500...wow...too bad Craig Engels didn't get in this one...he would have had a 3:31ish PR.

    INEOS 1:59 Challenge opinion.

    I have nothing but awe and great respect for the ability of Eluid Kipchoge. He is undoubtedly one of the greatest distance runners of all time. But this latest project, INEOS 1:59 Challenge, to pull...
  25. Craig Engles should get PR this Sunday in Birmingham.

    I was glad to see that Craig Engels is entered in the 1500m this Sunday in Birmingham as this will likely be a paced/fast race and his 3:35.32 PR will go down.
