    Women's 200 was a great race, as were the men's 100 and the women's 100h.

    oh good, I'm not the only one who thought it was perhaps the worst DL meet of the year

    But the meet did provide the first ever outdoor meeting between Klosterhalfen and Schlachtenhaufen!

    Ha! For the longest time, I seriously thought they were the same person, different nationalities notwithstanding!!

    The conditions were not great, which from a mark snob's perspective made the meet look worse than it really was.

    The wMile leader splits were, 62.74, 66.48, 65.63, and 66.26.

    Klosterhalfen had the lead at the bell, so the 66.26 was her last lap split. It's almost as if it were a mirror of the 400 meter, when the winner is the one who maintains form and slows down the least in the last 100 meters.

    That being said, her 4:21 mile was fantastic.

    True, but many of the fields were very thin.

    Agree and I hope this lays to rest any anorexia claims. Without any medical training but just my intuition I find it hard to believe someone suffering from anorexia could set a national record in any athletic event.

    The w200 was fantastic and I do get a kick out of watching the future mother of our future Ruler(s) destroying the sprints right now.

    Just like some people said here, she's been at least this skinny ever since she emerged, but she's still made great progress during that time. You wouldn't expect someone with a serious eating disorder to be able to do that.

    With that said, 4:21 is nowhere near as good as her 1500 best.
