    Yes, Ealey has been the best of the rest behind Gong this year, but I stand by my point: she's not someone I'm confident is going to throw at that level in Doha. She well may, but with her lack of championship experience and less than perfect consistency, it could go either way.

    True, but the average pace of Chepkoech's WR is a bit faster than the average pace of Krause's 2K. Clearly, Chepkoech's mark is vastly superior to Krause's. Also, Krause just set a 4-second PB at 9:07.51. It's a cheap record.

    BTW, the old "WR" for the 2000 SC was an enroute time (5:54.16+), Ruth Jebet, during her 8:52.78 WR at St. Denis, 2016.

    That "WR" by Krause isn't relevant as a WR, but as a big result for her personally. In Zürich she wasn't confident enough to stick to the fastest women from the start but still got a big PB/NR and was extremely fast on the last lap. In Berlin she knew she was in excellent shape and it showed. I believe she is in 9.00 shape and that could get her a medal.

    Not sure she'll have a chance to run 9:00 in Doha, but after Berlin I agree she is a potential medalist.

    Why (I want to know, because you probably know more than me)? Certainly the Americans have done great times in the Championship meets and she is in the same class, it seems, as the top Americans.

    Great, perhaps, but not 9:00 And the London weather was more conducive to fast times in distance races (AC in Doha notwithstanding).

    Are the distance races being run late in the day and they can control the temperature so it might be no problem at all for the Steeple. There probably won't be a massive number of bodies generating heat in the stadium (something much more of an issue for, say, a Soccer World Cup.
