    If she's not retroactively DQ'ed, that would really piss me off!
    Colleen Quigley steps ON the curb, NOT over it (on the infield)--and is DQ'ed!
    Schippers goes OVER her lane line---her INSIDE lane line---and is given a pass!!

    No way, Jose!!

    Pretty blatant. I assume in a international championship event protests would have abounded.

    Back to Barega...he has a very efficient running style. I can see him running faster to the point of perhaps challenging the WR.

    Definitely....The second k was 2:40....then 7:32 last 3k....and he looked very relaxed....
    Good news too...I never thought we would ever see anyone approach the WR soon .

    Amazing run...Ralph King who was second in 13:20 thought he had he won...and the 'rabbit' had dropped out...

    I remembered that part, just couldn't remember the name of the US athlete concerned! In those days of course, 13:20 was a perfectly feasible winning time even at a prestigious meet in Oslo.

    Stew McSweyn down in 12th in the M5000m became 2nd fastest Aussie ever with 13:05.23. It's the 7th fastest performance by an Australian two (Craig Mottram ran faster on 6 occassions).

    Nice season from 23 year old McSweyn:
    3:34.82 (down from 3:41)
    3:54.60
    7:34.79 (down from 7:47)
    13:05.23 (down from 13:19)
    28:05.37 (dowm from 28:29)

    Was best known as a prospective steepler before this year (8:34.25 PR from 2017)

Races were always tactical at 5k in the last years. Barega probably wouldn't have run even close to that time if not for Kejelcha. To give an example, I think Kamworor could have run very fast had he chosen to go after it. I still think there should be good money prices for fast time. Doing that you would avoid to have races which results in walks in the park and last blistering laps.
    Well...I think they should focus back to the 5k and 10k without neglecting
    the other distances. After all, Kenyans no so long ago were notorious for
    producing tremendous results in these events, remember a certain Daniel Komen for instance?

    Someone needs to talk to Paul Tergat!

    I'll guess that this is more of a financial issue than a desire to compete in a specific event.
