    That's is 100% correct. Bernard was disturbed about the steeple situation of Kemboi having the bronze taken away for such a trivial thing and once he heard the DQ offences in the 5000 were "touching...

    Don't be thinking it must be a slow race for Kip to be a factor. We're quietly confident he's able to run under 13:10 if needed. I can't see it being that fast but a sub 13:25 with a fast last mile...

    Actually he didn't "go for the Master's WR", he went for an Olympic qualifying time of sub-28:00. He made it comfortably, kicking to a win in 27:49.36 with a last 800 of 2:02.3. A nice run in his...

    I can't believe this race won't be under 13 minutes. Conditions are good in Monaco (race is 8:55pm) and the pacemakers should be capable of 7:44/45. I'll be surprised if the guys aren't right...

    You also have the Robertson boys dropping their times in the 5,000 meters. Zane, in fact, nearly got Quax's NR with his 13:13.83 at Belgium. [If memory serves, Quax still has it--?]
