    It looked like the crowds were much better tonight, yes? With the three distance finals on tap, one would think so.

    So you think all the screaming Ethiopians tonight were forced to come into the stadium? They sure didn't act like it.

    It's a shame they didn't shape the schedule better in anticipation of what the fans in the stands would be cheering for. The 100 meter dash finals would have had more fans in attendance if they were held right before a distance event.

    Surely something that should be considered if Kenya hosts in 2025.

    In this day and age I can't imagine TV would ever allow the staging of the 100s as anything but the program's climax.

    with all the drug questions swirling around Kenya how could they possibly be given this meet. And, if they were, would it be at altitude?

    IAAF really wants the meet to go to Africa... agree that Kenya should be suspended as a Federation.
