    Mu WAS sick but she is back training. Not sure if Mu had a mild case of Covid or not.

    But all these theories of Mu dropping out of USA's, not making the 800 team, moving to the 400, etc. are very premature and based on pure speculation. Covid affects everyone very differently. Some people are sick for a long time and other people are fine in a few days.

      A very fit young professional athlete may be less likely to have serious covid symptoms but we already know for a fact that a small percentage of people fitting Mu's profile are outliers.

        The whole Commonwealth is dominant.

          However you can feel ok, but something can affect your system where you feel good but your strength and energy are just enough to affect your performance. And at this level it can make a difference.

            I was hoping Teare would have had a bit more zip at the end. He may be a tweener in that the 1500m is too short and 5000m too long internationally.
            Yeah, he's never going to be a 1500 guy. Maybe not even a 5000 guy. He has no niche. 13:00 is a fine time, but to be competitive you need to run that in your sleep and not just a time trial effort where it's setup.

Cherry did not look good, maybe a bad race, but Im relatively certain the US 400 team for Eugene will be Norman, Ross and Cherry. Not a bad lineup.
              Benjamin for the relay.

It is remarkable that she is also very competitive in the 400, but she's really not even close to # 1 in the world. Why is Covid going to hurt you more in the 800 than the 400 ? Possibly making the US team at this moment might be easier in the 400, but the only point of making the team is to win the world title. That's unlikely for her in the 400 and likely in the 800.
                The idea I had with my comment was that, maybe the shorter the distance, the less likely for a residual effect (post-recovery) to emerge and overtake her before finishing the race.

                  Teare is all of 22 years old; perhaps just a tad early to be writing him off in any niche?

                    I agree. People need to understand that he and Hocker are still quite young. Not even one year as a professional athlete.

                    13:05 is very good for a 22yo American.

                    Hocker is only 20 (21 soon) and has already three US titles and is expected to make the 1500 team. That is fantastic.

                      Yeah...I just re-watched the race and I see that. I still don't know what Hocker was doing. Waiting for a hole to open I assume.

                        I thought it was gonna be a sub 22 based on how dominant she was and considering it was a decent field.

                            But she beat Hull by 0.6 (and dominated the rest) last week, She was 5 sec behind Hull in this race.

                            • BTW, doesn't NBC Sports know the difference between Jakob and Filip Ingebrigtsen? I was wondering why they were showing Filip before the race, and then saw the caption...

                                Cherry has a bye.
