        Van der Westhuizen drops his PB from 3.37,22 to 3.35,33. Had never broken 3.41 before this season.

          Also impressed by Bumbalough's PR in 8th. Perhaps the 15 is his best distance?

            Another nice run for Solares, too

              Was also a nice PB drop for Manzano, from 3.35,29

                So far both men's and women's 1500 have been smoking fast, i hope Lagat can get under 13 here today with the wind.
                phsstt!

                  He gets into a fast race with the top dogs in the world, he'll drop down to 3:31 in a hurry.

                    Yes, perhaps. However, he has to make it out of this little meet called USATF - something he was unable to do last year when he ran against slower runners.

                      Yep, Webb's problem isn't running 3:42 in May. There's plenty of time to peak for Berlin. Webb's problem is that he was the 5th US athlete in that race, with plenty of talent that wasn't in that race like Lagat et al.

                        I agree. Webb needs to run more races then to lead at a fast pace as he did in 2004 OT.
                        none

                          Webb's problem is that he looks thick, heavy, and slow. By about 300m, it seemed pretty clear that he was fighting just to hang on.

                          Good for Manzano--he ran a gutsy race.

                            Wow, kuha, that description could be the exact same one about his 2-mile from Carson a couple of years back save the distance at which he looked beat.

                              And, as we know, that's the story of his entire career. Either very good, or inexplicably mediocre. I've given up trying to figure it out: his career is what it is. At this point, perhaps, to paraphrase the noted philosopher George W. Bush, "Webb deserves our silence." It's the folks up front who deserve our attention...
