        The guy who has run 3:31.58 and 3:31.25 INDOORS, that guy?

          <<Yeah the energy was amazing I like having the crowd right there its really cool and I like you know bringing on the claps and hearing them giving us the energy it’s really nice and I almost really forget that my foot is really hurting.>>

          aside from being all in favor of making the athletes happy I'm thrilled at anything (including even —ugh! — the wave) that engages the general crowd.

            Good point - I retract my criticism (since I've never clapped anyway, nor partook of that particular tomfoolery called, 'The Wave').

                Nina did well this year: 3rd at the WC, 1st at the CG and 1st at the DL Finals. She will get better.

                  Hey, the announcers referenced it. Bogus or not, that "track" is all kinds of wavy and curvy. Let's hope there isn't a long term contract.

                    Thirdly, NO, NOTHING counts from these races (except maybe DL points, which I don't give a flying fuck about!!)---no listed marks and no records of any kind!
                    Fourthly, if these abominations are akin to anything, try Kipchoge's two sub-2 marathon attempts!
                    Meaning, they could run 12:20 & 13:45, and yet you'd find it impossible to locate the results in any record book---as it must and should be!!
                    I'm not a particularly big fan of the street meet aspect of Zurich and especially the 5,000m races however I'm..um...slightly less emotional about the festivities than mr. k is.

                      I think the only runner who might be a fan is Sydney McLauglin as the track turns are very similar to what she trained on in high school : )

                          OMG - after a year with truly amazing World Champs, Comm Games & Euros - there can still be an unforgettable 'street meet' like this. WHAT an amazing entertaining event.

                          And some people say 'how can we get more fans for this sport?'

                          The answer is something like this.

                          PS - well done Nina!

                            Where did you read that? And why does Allie Wilson pacemaking automatically make it a WR attempt?
                            1.Allie Wilson was pacemaker for Kipyegon in Monaco
                            2.Faith Kipyegon said after Monaco she will make one more attempt for WR this season

                              I read on twitter, that Shericka said she wants to go back to the 400m soon when she's fit enough to run all three because she still has an unfinished business with the event. She said, she believes she can run 48.3 👀. Suddenly the event is starting to pick up again with Shericka's plausible comeback, femke Bol's 49.44, Sydney's 47.91 relay split, Paulino 49.20, Sada willaims 49.75, Cofil 49.80 and Naser's comeback next year if she can manage to get back to form.

                                Nasers 2019 run was something of Pure joy. I think she comes back and she slowly gets it together in 2024 she's back under sub 49 with ease.
                                Apparently Ignorance is bliss
