    With the 1-2 combination in Flanagan and Goucher, this has the makings of becoming a sit-and-kick session for these two, but not a fast race for the field; both are returning for the 5.000m later in the meet. I don:t believe any other athlete in the race has the strength/speed element needed to fartlek and sprint with these two, so the top two will break away and use it as a tune-up session for their real showdown at 5.000m. Kastor picked up the pace following 1.200m four years ago, and won by nearly 49 seconds.

      "I have my moments when I get overwhelmed and think, what happens if I blow up at Trials and don't make the team," Goucher said.

      "This could all be over. A lot depends on how I do at the Trials and the Olympics, and the reality is that if I don't run fast people aren't really going to care what I'm endorsing. My whole thing has always been that if I don't run well and perform well, nobody's going to care. I don't want to have my face out there everywhere and be a horrible runner."
      Good story with video and early fotos of Goucher:s childhood.

          On the other hand, with Russell, McGregor and a few others it might still be A-standard fast.

          And just because Flanagan and Goucher are entered/declared in the 5000 doesn't mean either or both might not change her mind and scratch the 5 after making the 10 team.

            In that heat, that is a possibility - one which I haven:t discounted. Will the icing on their cake melt if they attempt two more races after their 10.000m runs?

              I wouldn't worry too much about the heat, at least if you're referring to the 10,000. That's being run tonight at 9:20, about four hours after the high temperature will have hit. By the time they run the race, it could well be in the 60s.

              The heats for the 5000 will be run on Monday at 8:50, the final on Friday at 8:55, so again, not much to worry about in terms of heat at the time of these races.

                          4K, 13:09.0 Flanagan, Lewy

                          Flanagan steps it up around the turn and stretches things on the back stretch, on second turn there are 5 separating from the field: Flanagan, Goucher, Begley, Koll, McGregor.

                          Flanagan ran the lap in 71.2.
