    Of course, the pacing wasn't nearly as contrived as Kipchoge's, but it should be noted that she ran much of the race behind two male pace-makers, and her final time was nearly three minutes faster...

    I'm struck, as I have been in the past, by how few people are on the streets watching the runners go by. Nothing like New York.

    I've got both Gold and that local feed open on separate tabs. That way I can watch the Gold and listen to the local commentary.

    I had no problem logging into Gold this morning, but I never did log in during the World Championships because I was in Doha.

    The only sound on NBC Sports Gold is from the course in Chcicago. No studio or other commentary. I wonder if that's deliberate. I doubt it.

    Here's something I don't think I've ever seen before. The Botswana men's 4x4 was DQed from its heat for passing out of the zone, and the national federation has now apologized for this.

    1987 was the last year that remeasuring was required. The 1988 rules eliminated that requirement.

    And then there's Cameron Burrell. His parents (Leroy Burrell and MIchelle Finn) were both Olympic relay gold medalists, and he was last year's NCAA 100m champion.

    NBC Sports Gold says their stream starts at 1:45am Eastern time. I'll pass on that.

    Whatever it is, it will probably be different in 2021. WA has really upped its Event Presentation game--they're way ahead of what we've seen USATF do, just judging from World and US Championships.

    Her coach says she ran exactly as she planned to run. Not second-guessing what she did at all. See story linked in front page headline section.

    There may indeed have been Diackian machinations, but Coe has said that he voted for Doha. He wasn't the President then, but if he had been, the result might have been the same.
