    They're packing in seat fillers dressed in formal garb tonight, most in the upper rows on the backstretch

    I remember Daegu being a bit of a mess the first day, but they pulled it together and things functioned well after day one. Doha has had two days and still seem to be somewhat dysfunctional. ...

    The performances have been wonderful for the most part. The organization has been pretty poor. For instance, yesterday the gates were supposed to open two hours before the meet started. The...

    I'll never forgive them for Berlin and the men's 4x100 DQ

    Might have been a profitable bet that the Jamaicans would be more likely to medal in the TJ vs the 100m.

    Perhaps an error, but the IAAF website shows him with a small q; this is four hours after the race. Wonder if it's an error or was he re-instated ala Ingebritsen?

    He ran like an idiot the last 5 meters, as though he was about to win his heat and looking around at the losers. Inexplicable for an experienced athlete.

    Jakob was boxed in pretty much the last two laps. He seemed to go into a bit of a panic mode and ultimately committed a foul that should have been upheld. He's a great runner, but not yet a vastly...

    The demand will be hugely higher in Eugene than here in Qatar. I think many people aren't coming from other countries due to fears of the Middle East, religious and political persuasons and Qatar...

    I love Des Moines and this was my 7th trip and I live in Eugene. I agree that meets should be spread around, but ultimately Eugene is a guaranteed great crowd, unlike anywhere else.

    The Register Guard not only carried a large photo of Delilah on sports page 1, they also placed a small box above the banner on the front page of the entire paper. Meanwhile, almost unbelievably,...

    Anyone know why Prandini scratched? She seemed a reasonable bet to make the team and showed no sign of injury after her 100s

    Hejnova is old news. A great star, but she hasn’t run 52 anything in 4 years.

    I dunno. They’d probably have to clear any comments with the IAAF first.

    Home, sweet home, but we shouldn't forget his stunning upset in Sacramento in 2014 which sent this Duck fan happily home on the 7 hour drive back to Eugene.

    Disagree. Most runners wear watches, much as they would during training, thus no internal clock is necessary. Also, presumably most of the runners have coaches on the rail telling them what they...

    Agreed! I think the announcer made such a big deal out of that while also thinking that as soon as he runs against anybody of significance, that streak is gone.

    Not sure what's going on with Allen. He simply hasn't looked good this year at all. One might argue that he's building towards a peak and, given that there's a significant drop from 3rd to 4th...

    Watch out for Gillespie next year. His 4th place came after long indoor and outdoor seasons which, I believe, put him at a disadvantage to the rest of the field. Hopefully, he'll get to run a round...

    Big time! Sadly, he had heat, humidity and exhaustion to deal with and, worse yet, he was out there all alone. Had there been a quick 1500 runner in the event (think Curtis Beach), I think he would...

    Fun enough race to watch, but why those fighting for the standard didn't take it out early is way beyond my comprehension. The first half of the race was dreadfully slow, thus taking away any chance...

    Not gonna happen unless she was dogging it last night; she was struggling and I see no way she's going to move on to the WCs. The crowd gave her a lot of love.

    He mentioned to the Eugene Register Guard that he'd run the final if he felt good. I seriously doubt that he'll run further, but I sure hope he does!

    Erassa and Korir were neck and neck with about 250 meters left. The instant Korir charged past Erassa, Erassa essentially quit. Too bad, since the real excitement was becoming that race for third...
