    I enjoyed watching this -- as Crystal remarked, the winners came in, in the 15s, and the first master came in in the 17s - just like you might expect in a high profile 5K. Except this was Western States, so they were measuring hours, not minutes.

    The difference in ambient light between 2nd place (Krupicka) and 3rd place (Killian) is really something.

    It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

      Got to feel sorry for this girl.  However, she posted the video herself and made a joke about it so hopefully she is okay... http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=ibtcWbxoXNU

        Also the video I posted in the training thread of the Payton Jordan 5K I think is working better now.

          It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

            Nice table. I'm pleasantly surprised that Blake, Bolt, and Powell actually made it out of their out national trials. That was a deep field.

              Yeah - they had 4 under 10 in the final - but then, we had 5 under 10 in our final.

                Men's 4x100 (Trell Kimmons, Justin Gatlin, Tyson Gay and Ryan Bailey): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oosXcmdYbc8

                 

                Article on the meet -- said Yelena Isanbeyva (the dominant woman pole vaulter in the 2000s) couldn't clear the opening height: http://www.supersport.com/athletics/article.aspx?Id=1489351

                    Saw this on letsrun -- an Olympic 1500 that wasn't a long jog leading up to a sprint -- 2000 Sydney men's --  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUH0Hp_sv0w

                     

                    Well, the second lap was slow - but the first, third, and fourth were moving along.

                    It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

                          Watched this race again: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKEOjWEzVGs

                           

                          Amos ran a brilliantly successful execution of tactics and strength - drafted and kicked.

                           

                          Simultaneously, Rudisha went out blazingly fast and led gate to wire, also dazzlingly successful.

                          It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

                            I struggle to run 100m close to that pace. Rudisha is amazing. He was basically the pacemaker for the rest of the field and still crushed them all.

                              One of the writeups on that race said 7 PBs, 3 NRs, one world jr (Amos), and obviously the WR.

                              It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.
