    Tesfaye, yes, probably. I'm not sold on Özbilen; he has WIC and EIC silver but has never convinced me in outdoor majors. He doesn't have the kick or tactical acumen to match Ingebrigtsen, so his best hope would be an extremely fast race, which is unlikely.

    norunner swears by Timo Benitz, who could be a dark horse.

    Henrik Ingebrigtsen, i had him a 332-3 guy a few years back based on the scalps he took.

    as for the 800, 147 is not the number. it is 145 high.

    Nope, surprisingly he is a 1.48.09 runner (and races the distance pretty regularly (although mainly only in Norway))

    I don't think Centro's 3:32.70 is anything to be ashamed of, although there seems to be a feeling in the air that he somehow failed by not running a PR since he skipped Nats. He appeared to be working pretty hard the last 100 but without the top-end speed he usually exhibits when spot on. So he just needs to sharpen up, no big deal. He certainly wasn't going to run 3:32 in the U.S. last week.

    That top-end speed at the finish seems to have more to it when it is for a top place, especially a medal. Does it seem that way to others?
