    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.

    And I'm scratching my head over how Norman could blaze a 43.45 way back in April...and hasn't really come close since.

    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...
  17. 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.

    Danger sign?

    I know we had a long thread on this before but I couldn't help but notice Bryce Hoppel's 1:47.48 fourth place at the Pan Am Games and wondered...is this a danger sign reflecting our too long track...

    Yeah, sorry...I didn't see it so thought it got lost somehow and so I asked again.
  20. What happened to Ryan Hill and Sean McGorty this year?

    We know that Eric Jenkins was injured but does anyone know what happened to Ryan Hill and Sean McGorty this 2019 outdoor season?

    Missed not seeing them battling in the USATF 5000m.

  21. What happened to Ryan Hill and Sean McGorty this year?

    Haven't seen these two in any outdoor meets and no where in sight at the USATF champs.


    Got word that Eric Jenkins has been battling injury all spring and, after his 13:22 at Payton Jordan, and...

    Kerley Vs. Norman.

    It's going to be interesting to see who ultimately triumphs between these two at Doha and beyond. Very impressed with Kerley's comeback and 43.64 win at USATF but I think Norman has greater speed...

    His 3:38.21 PR doesn't reflect his current form...I think, in a good rabbited race, he could run 3:35ish.

    Josh Thompson really surprised me...who would have picked him for 3rd? And he had a blazing 1:50.33 final 800m...faster than Engels (1:50.65) and Centro (1:50.44).

    Looks like he might have a...

    Just a side note from a BYU fan...Connor McMillan was over 20 seconds behind Erassa with a lap to go and ran an impressive 59.90 to catch Erassa right at the line. No one would have picked McMillan...
