    For the first two laps, Mekhissi-Benabbad was right with the rabbit, who ran 54.72, 1:51.06 (56.34), then faded horribly to 4:09+. The third lap dropped way off to 59.01, so no chance for sub-3:30. Winner Kwemoi is a junior, and will be on Kenya's Commonwealth team, apparently. SB for Centrowitz in 7th. He doesn't do that well in these rabbited races, compared to championships.

    So Centro passed up on $7000+ Nike bonus for this?

    Ah, the luxuries of hindsight.

    note: Kwemoi's "PB" also makes him No. 4 on the all-time world Junior list. Still only 18

    I think Norway's 23 year old Henrik Ingebrigtsen is about to establish himself as Europe's top 1500/mile runner. He beat Centro in the Bslett mile, ran 3.50.72. But he lost to him in Lausanne, setting a new Norwegian record with 3.33.68. He is an interesting talent. Reminds me in many ways ways of Rodal. Extemely confident, outspoken and fairly versatile. He can probably run in the 1.47s now and has a 8.42 3000m from last year. He is the reigning European 1500 champion. It was said the reason was that several of Europe's top runners did not compete. But there is no reason he can't win again this year.

    That would be 7:42, of course. Interestingly, his 1500 and mile PRs are of essentially the same worth. He was 5th in London, 8th in Moscow in global champs, but has improved.

    I would think Homiyu Tesfaye (3:31.98, 3:49.86) and Ilham Ozbilen (3:32.09) will be his most serious opponents in Zurich.
