    If that is true, everyone else, with the possible exception of Bekele, is a basic 2:04 plus marathoner. It is probably true that the shoes give him, and anyone else who wears them, an advantage. But...

    I read the article, and it didn't seem like sour grapes to me. It seemed more likely admiration mixed with an honest assessment.

    Thank you, Powell. I suspected he had run more than one, but didn't do the research.

    In the marathon, I think he is the co-GOAT with Bikila ... maybe a notch ahead. Interestingly, his 5k credentials are far superior to his 10k. OG silver & bronze. WC gold, silver, with his 2003...

    I would think T&FN will give credit to Claye for the win, but not count it as a loss for CT.

    Regarding Coleman and Lyles, men's sprinters will run in the shadow of Bolt for a long time. Someone might have a season chock full of 9.9x & 9.8x, with a 9.7x in there, plus a global championship,...

    Landing on a foam mat while wearing spikes could be a bit problematic. Would it show a hand drag or butt drag?

    Good points, but then again, who in 1999 foresaw Bekele and/or Isinbayeva dominating their decade? If they continue to improve, M&M will be among the dominant athletes, but it will be exciting to see...

    The way I read booond's post was that, even if you take Hassan out of the picture (which isn't going to happen), Muir still has to contend with Kipyegon, Tsegay, and Houlihan. Not to mention Simpson...

    I was at work all day, and after reading this board, I finally got home to watch the race. UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!! Amazing race for every competitor. Both Nasar and SMU had the race of their lives.

    Bummer! If it were in Eugene or London or Helsinki or Berlin or Zurich, the stadium would most definitely not be empty.

    I tried counting the steps, but the resolution isn't the best. Definitely 12 steps on some of the backstretch, and 13 on the last several hurdles.

    Yes, Kenyans are prone to use team tactics, but Chepkoech needed no help. The only help she could have received would have been for Chespol & Kiyeng to make life miserable for Coburn & Frerichs, but...

    Those are some good points, but let's remember she took 6th, and beat 2 of the 3 Kenyans. The US was the first to have 2 finishers.

    I'm sure her camp is having all these conversations also, and...

    Thank you. I meant Filip, not Henrik, in my initial post. My bad.

    Wow! Chepkoech at 2:52.95 for the first k.

    But the live results page does not list any split times behind her (so far).

    What happened to Henrik? The live commentary seemed to indicate he was affected ted by the scrum with a lap or two to go.
