  • Best Performance So Far?

    What has been the best performance and performer at WC2003 so far?

    WR 20K walk by Perez?
    Kruft Heptathalon?
    Kelli White?
    Guevara 400M?

    I think you have to add Bekele and Adere, too. Bekele not quite as high on all-time list, but considering everything, he'd rank up there. For those of us who figure 29:31 was not clean, then Adere's 30:04 is No. 2 all-time.

      Bekele's 12:57 after warming up with a 13:52.

        Seriously, how disheartening is it to realize that he can run repeat 5000's in 13:52, and then 12:57, with 0.0 rest in between?

          7001 pts by far.

          Of course, I'm biased towards a woman who can do it all Gotta love it. 3rd All-time, beautiful, happy girl.. Nothing better.

            Most (if not all right now) of our American distance runners can't run a 12:57 once, let alone after a 5000m warm up.

              Bekele's performance is the best of the meet so far. And, for the record, if we delete the 29:31 Wang performance, Adere's 30:04 isn't the next best. Remeber Radcliffe last summer??

                  My stupidity. I misread the above post. Sorry.

                    Bekele's feat was impressive, but remember it's the time for the WHOLE 10K that that's important -not for one 5K split. I mean, I'm sure Bekele could run under 12:40 for the half of a 10K if he ran the firs 5K slowly enough. Ultimately, I think Anna G's sub-49 was more impressive

                      Now wait a minute, BG, think about what you just said, that he could run "under 12:40....."... are you intending to say he can run an easy 5k, then break the 5k world record for the 2nd one? The WR is 12:39 !! It's still a long way from 12:57 to 12:39.

                        Nobody noticed but there was also a WR in the 50W. Talk about getting no respect.

                          That's because they were . . . um . . . walking.

                            LOL! OK sub-12:40 was a big stretch, but you get the idea. He was able to run such a fast second 5K because the first 5K didn't fatigue him much. Now if he had averaged 13:00 per 5K, THAT would be ridiculous!

                              Haile G did average 13:11 with his WR 10K. That really is mind boggling...
