    He's lucky the IAAF judges weren't on the job.

    It wasn't a conference meet, but the Last Chance meet at ACU. Was blessed to see an 18'8" PV from Clayton Fritsch today. He made some attempts at 19' but couldn't quite pull it off. Amazing to see in person!
    You there, on the motorbike! Sell me one of your melons!

    As a freshman U20, Richardson looks like the real deal with a mid race surge from a shorter sprinter which is impressive when we're use to Devers/SAFP types who fly out and hold on.

    Her upcoming head to heads with White are going to be huge.

    A distance running observation: Ben Veatch of Indiana ...first giving Morgan McDonald all he could handle in the 10,000 meter and a 56.79 final lap. Then coming back to win a tactical 5,000. I think he will be a factor for a podium finish at NCAA's.

    You can feel the carnage coming when they bunch up on the first lap. Finally happens at 1:29.

    This was really one mess of a race, and from the video it is hard to tell if the right competitor was disqualified. At the end of the first lap, it seems like the Minnesota guy (Lucas Trapp) tries to move into the lead but he was pretty much boxed in by the leader (Iowa’s Tysen VanDraska) on the inside and Ohio State’s Alexander Lomong on the outside. Trapp forces his way through, cutting off Lomong in the process. Lomong is passed on the inside by Michigan’s Derrick Simmons, and at about 500m it looks like Lomong pushes Simmons. Simmons makes a move for the lead on the back straight, pulling outside of VanDraska, and Lomong pulls closer to the leaders.

    At 600m it looks like VanDraska whacks Simmons with his right elbow, and it is not clear to me that Simmons tried to cut in too soon going into the turn. An instant after the elbow is thrown, Lomong grabs at the back of Simmons singlet, causing Simmons to fall and resulting in Lomong and Trapp going down as well. It might be possible that Lomong grabbed Simmons jersey because Simmons was forced to slow up after he could not pass VanDraska, but it is not clear from the video.

    On the final straight, VanDraska is challenged by Illinois’ Daniel Kuhn, running outside in lane two. VanDraska, who started the straight near the curb, drifts out, edging into lane 2 to prevent Kuhn from passing.

    Lomong got the DQ, perhaps because it looked like his jersey-grab caused the falls. I don’t see the exact lane violation referenced by tandfman on the first turn, but VanDraska certainly tries to hold his position very aggressively. If he elbowed Simmons at 600m he probably deserved a DQ as well.
