    Heusden-Zolder, Belgium - It was a firm announcement from Paul Kipsiele Koech at the press conference Friday (18), but the Kenyan looked very serious and determined when he talked about Sunday’s 3000m Steeplechase (20 July).

    “I will run at the KBC Night of Athletics as if it were the Olympic Games. My first target is to break my personal best of 7:56.37, but that would bring me close to the World record of 7:53.63. The pace will be set to break Saif Saaeed Shaheen’s World Record.”

    I was surprised that he didn't run in Paris yesterday, makes sense now.

    Remarkable. Two of Kenya:s best, each left off of Olympic teams for whatever reasons, both tackling on the world record as redemption of sorts.

      solid meet always. Hope this year brings the goods! I feel bad for Koech. Can't imagine how he is dealing with being left off the team. He should have been given the wildcard spot. AK is FUBAR if you ask me.

        The last several years some of the Madison-based runners have been doing this (e.g., Tegenkamp) and they will be doing so again this year although Tegenkamp might be running the big 3000 a few days later instead.

          Several Americans have, in the past, used this meet as an "A" qualifying chaser. One example is Jim Sorensen, who, after finishing 2:nd at the 1996 USA OT, set his lifetime PB at this meet. He was initially requested by meet management to rabbit, but was petitioned in.

            i believe galen rupp ran his 13:37 high school record at this meet.

              I think he did that Belgium or Italy. Could be wrong for sure.

                You are correct (not trusting my own memory, I checked the 2004 results of this meet to confirm).

                              Since niether Rens Bloom nor Skipper have started at the bar is at 5.50, does that mean they were no shows or is Skipper finally healthy and starting above 5.50?

                              [edit] looks like no shows since it doesn't show them passing.
