    A common complaint of mine. I have on occasion suspended competition until they turned off the damn speakers over the horizontal pits that made communication impossible.

    Ah, I couldn't recall exactly and I looked at Peter Larsson's All-Time list, which has 3:31.51, for some reason. I see that Track Newsletter does report 3:31.25.

    So, it's the outdoor all-comers 1500m record, and it's the fastest actual 1500m race run in the US.
    3:31.25 is what is listed for Kejelcha.

    Yes. I could be wrong, but the previous best looks to have been 3:32.34 by Rashid Ramzi of Bahrain in May 2006

    Kerr moves up to 7th on the UK all-time list (behind Farah, Wightman, Cram, Coe, Grice & Ovett).

    He came in 7th place in the 800m.
    That makes him #6 all time high school, and #3 in California. (The 2 ahead of him were both national records at the time.)

    The software does it for anyone.

    Eric Jenkins just won the 5000 in 13:20.18.

    I saw his best time and was really concerned. Now that I see that he ran three heats, it looks like he is really ready for the trials.
