    I believe this makes 5-7 in the win-loss column for Borzakovskiy here, if memory serves correctly.

    not particularly

    those old wooden boards may have been harder than modern tracks are allowed to be ( 65% energy return nowdays ) - they were built in '60s when i don't think those rules existed

    Ah - I missed that one, thanks for the catch. It's too bad there are no WIC's, there have been several good 3000m races the past few weeks.

    You may like it, but I doubt it's true in many cases. Coghlan's 3:49 Mile was not a 3:45. Lindgren's 8:40 was certainly not an 8:32. I suspect they were nearly identical to outdoor times. A crowd screaming at you from a few feet away can do that to you.

    I just hope Kipsiele Koech will finally win a big race, he isn't getting younger either.

    next up for defar is a world record attempt in prague on february 26th in either the 5k or 2k,
    rather than chasing the rarely run 2k event, maybe the meet promoter could have her run the mile, the indoor record is 4:17 defar should not have much of a problem breaking that, or have her run a 1500 she would probably break sobolova's 3:57 for 1500 wr, if she ran the mile she might even get the 1500 and mile records in the same race.

    Yes, he beat them all! Despite being dog tired. Linus even removed his tights for this meet! but still only 2.26. For some reason he never jumps well at this venue.

    Apart from Ukhov the russians have not been that impressive so far. I think we might have seen the best of Rybakov. Silnov is just biding his time.

    Nooooooooooo!! Hooker three failures at 6.00 - the only time this year he's failed at a height other than WR.

    The bubble has burst. Hooker's on the way down..

    Still...the 2008 "Number One" failed to even clear a height..
