    Re: Brussels Blowout

    <<27:51.06>>

    Hands down Bob Kennedy has turned in the best performance this year by a US distance runner.

    Kennedy will show today's US distance runners how the old guard used to run. Today's US distance runners don't know what it is like to run a 3:49 mile, an 8:10 Steeplechase, and a 13:00 5000meters.
    Kennedy is the last of the great holdovers from the 90's.

      America needs another Sydney Maree. Import a few distance runners. Why not? They imported their sprinters some time ago.

        The dismay shown over athletes moving around the globe to compete for other countries is trite and banal. Who cares what country they represent? Sanchez is a 100% born and raised American and if he chooses to run for DR, yay for him and yay for them. Hopefully athletics is more about striving for excellence than nationalism. Yes, I want the USA to do well internationally, but I shared in Sanchez's victory as much as Sanya Richard's anchor in the 4x4.

          As far as I know 27:41 beats 27:51.

            Yes, isn't that what Alan Culpepper ran at Stanford last spring? But shouldn't that mean that if he was peaking right he could have been running 27:20 at worlds where it would mean a lot more (instead of 28:14). It appears that one of the few U.S. athletes who peaked right was Sandra Glover.Certainly, few of our distance runner were performing at their best in Paris....

              Back to Ayhan: I checked her splits from last year's Europeans, this year's Z├╝rich and the WC, and they are unbelievable consistent. I think she was just a little tired from the rounds. (She was ALMOST caught by Szabo at the Europeans.)
