    Mo could hang with a 26:20 pace two years ago. Can he now? I say yes.

    Also, a 26:24 in Vaporflys = what?

    Does Wilson, who had a perfect season going to this point, rank #1 in the W800?

    Magic eight ball says...yes. Rest of season too strong to be mitigated by this performance.

    Doubtless both would have preferred gold, but it will be a little less awkward when guests come over and admire the Uibo trophy case than if there were a gold and silver hanging in there.

    Let's hope Houlihan is sharp or get's sharper through the rounds of the 1500. That's going to be a barnburner last 800, likely sub 2:00.

    Re: Frierichs. I don't think you can just train your way through the summer, like BTC, and come into a championship race-sharp. Racing is the best sharpening.

    I used to hang my hat on this approach, but Armstrong never failed a test and he was a walking pharmacy. Add all the others (Marion Jones, etc.), I no longer believe anyone is clean. It's cynical,...
