      Can't wait to see the men's 100. Kim Collins, John Capell, and one other athlete ran the entire race after a false start was called. They re-ran the race just a few minutes later and Brits went 1-2-3 with Chambers running 10.27 into a 3 m/s wind (announcers figured it was a 9.95 w/o wind). Interviewed afterwards, Collins seemed a bit miffed but Capell just laughed and said he'd seen it before . . . last time he thought it was a false start (at the Olympics), he made the mistake of sitting in his blocks. When you read about this one, the results won't tell the whole story.

        It's really been quite enjoyable listening to this meet over the Internet. That 100 meter race must have been a hoot. There really wasn't much of a delay in re-running it, either.

          How did the American 1500 meter runners do? They must of run already it is 7:10 in the UK.

                Krummenacker is our only real international elite miler.
                That US national championship race has given Lunn a unrealistic perspective on how to run with the big boys. Slow national races have screwed up the pacing of US milers.
