    No Americans in the finals. What a shame.
    The great US distance decline continues.

    How did Lunn do. Did he even break 3:40?

    An investigation on the poor performances of US distance runners should commence after these world championships.

    Where is the improvement in US distance running? If anything things are worse than ever.

    Will any American distance runners make the finals in any event. At least we still have Krummenacker.

      I thought you had to be from Africa to succeed nowadays at middle and long distance? Who are these imposters from France, Ukraine, Portugal, Spain, Holland, and Russia in the final of the 1500M? And from Spain, France, Holland, Finland and Japan in the steeple final? Most of them (except Russia) with much smaller populations than we in the US have?

        Big problem is the bongo-beating mentality in this country. We glorify goof-balls like what's his name, when we should be looking for some bad-ass MFers to glorify.

        Distance running is not a bongo-beating activity. I think sometimes people confuse the great Pre era with bongo-beating, because he had that hippie look, I guess. But Pre was a bad-ass -- not a bongo-beating hippie. Same for many of the great US distance greats of that era.

        I think people in this country think the answer is in being a hippie bongo beater. It is not. The future of distance running is not in bongo drums. It is in getting bad asses out on the track.

          That's one of the best posts I've ever seen on this board. He's right; there's no room for wishy-washy nonsense in competitive running.

            Drugs have more of an effect on the longer distances. Those that can avoid true spot tests during their cycling phase(s) will dominate the longer races.

              I guess Japan and France are better than the US in distance events. I don't think there has ever been a worse World Championships for US distance runners. This is a national disgrace!

              Two years ago we all thought Alan Webb would be in these finals. Webb is now an invisible semi-pro.

                  El G showed great emotion at the finish. Where did the "air guitar" come from? You could tell he was relieved by the outcome. He just cranked a 2:19-2:20 last 1000m and said "Hang on Boys!!"

                  I am really a fan of his. One of the smoothest runners that I have ever seen. Can't wait for the 5000's to start. Another classic, I am sure!

                  my two cents

                    Lets hope at least Krummenacker can make the finals. Hopefully, maybe he will place.

                    This has been a nightmare world championships for US distance runners.

                      I was hesitant to post my real feelings on this because I don't like to rock the boat. I do that enough on the UT board. But I'm tired of seeing these Pre wannabes (or think they are) acting like goofballs. It's time to get serious and put the bongos away.

                        Just curious how did Jason Lunn do?
                        Obviously, he was not great since he was not in the finals.


                        Joe Falcon, Steve Holman are lonely eyes look to you.
                        Where have you gone great US milers of yesterday.

                            Steve Holman looked like the real thing. Why has he disappeared?

                            Isn't he about the same age as Krumenaker?

                              Krum will have a tough go of it. He hasn't been running very well as of late and when it not working in the 8 its just not working. There isn't much fixing.

                              Unfortunately he is running the wrong distance. Hopefully this awakening will put him in the 15 next year.
