    Exactly. I want to hear the crowd grow quiet before the start and the roar down the home stretch in a tight finish.

    Fair points, Dutra. Those moments do add to the drama.

    While I am sure the atmosphere in the stadium will be somewhat deflating, I agree with you. I get excited watching any type of racing, honestly.

    Fast winning time in both men's & women's 1500m (held on the same track as the ATL meet).

    Just saw that the Canadian Fr/So/? at Wisconsin won the 800 in a big PR of 1:46.16, beating all of the pros.

    No worries, they'll have fake fan cheering sounds to keep the energy up

    The theme song for Tokyo should maybe be the latest Rolling Stones song--Living in a Ghost Town.

    Wind readings are now included in the online results. Her time was wind-aided: +2.5 m/s.
