      This is really good running by Tegenkamp and Solinsky to stick with Kipchoge and Lagat.

        I was impressed by those two as well. Teg should do really well at 5000 this season.

          That was such a great race - fantastic comeback by Lagat against Shaheen. Really great stuff.

              Pre "best" marks for place, 2-8 (of those known -- see above with respect to 2-miles contested).

                Shaheen might have been better off tucking in around the bend, in retrospect. It looked like Lagat might have let him go when he came on to his shoulder.

                  Nice plug for TFN: when the camera panned to Lagat signing autographs in the backstretch, a kid was holding up an issue (I think the one with Rupp on the cover) for him to sign next.

                    Solinsky had quite a kick there! I've never seen that from him in a world class race.

                      Tegenkamp could have placed at least 2nd and given it a good run for 1st - if you look at the race he was ready to pounce and made his move then got boxed in fell back and made another move for fourth. I saw it and thought he would take it but then he got trapped. :evil:

                        I noticed that as well. But, he has only himself to blame for being in that position. Took him a lot of energy he could have used. He looked very good though.

                          Exactly, he's to blame - a good lesson though. He looked really strong and able to run-em down but a little mistake cost him.

                            It appeared that Lagat was almost happy Shaheen passed him. He was setting him up.
