        And actually an interesting post-race interview. I'm looking forward to Willard vs Wurth-Thomas in the 1500.

          Don't forget about Rowbury.

            Best US women's 1500 field in years . . . perhaps ever?

              Whaaaa is right. Couldn't believe how she cut down Kenia Sinclair like that. A steeplechaser turned speed demon.

                I missed this and did a complete double-take when I saw the result. Willard beat Sinclair, who's already run 1:57.6 this year?

                I think you're right - the US women's 1500 looks good this year.

                  Wysocki/Slaney circa 1984 might have something to say about that.

                    Let's have them run the meet first and then comment on where it will stand in track & field history.

                        Willard, Wurth-Thomas, Barringer and Rowbury are all on the Pre start list in the 1500m.

                          Let's hope that
                          1) they all show up
                          2) conditions are good (i.e., no wind)
                          3) pacemakers do their jobs

                          Would be awesome to see the first US sub-4 since SFH.

                            Leave out #3 - the part about the pace-makers. These athletes need to continue gaining as many real-life race tactics as possible. There won't be a sign of rabbits a few weeks later in any of the races these athletes contest.

                              This race demonstrated how weak the US (world) w800m scene is. When a steepler can come in (first race of year at 800m) and win.
