    I see Tim Nelson got in; I hope that he acquits himself well. He might be part of the training group heading to Portland after the Games with Teg et al.

    7:48PR, not too bad for a 10,000m guy.

          Nelson wasn:t a moulded 10.000m guy in high school. He did win CA state in 8.53,59 ahead of future steepler Kyle Alcorn (8.53,66). 3.000m fits him, but the distance is infrequently run.

            Alas, if Cragg only had a stonger kick he'd have a shot at a medal. The only way I can see him getting top 6 is to go 3/4 laps out and hope he catches them off guard. He was the only European finalist in Athens, perhaps he'll repeat that feat again in Beijing .... just wish there was even a slim chance of a medal but there really isn't! :cry:

              I'm not saying Nelson isn't good at shorter distances, but I think it was fairly obvious to most who saw him run in high school that the longer distances would suit him. I remember thinking exactly that when he ran 14:35 for 5000 against the college guys at the Woody Wilson Invite in Davis. I think it was his junior year.

                I thought he:d make a good 5.000m runner, but not concentrate his efforts on the 10.000m. I did see him run at 2002 Arcadia against Solinsky.
