      It's really clear that Jelimo just doesn't have the same strength as last year. Ever have the feeling that the winter just hasn't been what she wanted?

      What a surprise for Vessey and what a great last 100! Am really pleased for Simpson in 3rd though.

        What???

        I have been too busy with local track to keep on top of this-is there a known reason for Jelimo's implosion?

          That was another reason I love track and field. The look of sheer joy and surprise on Vessey's face!

            Jelimo :shock:

            I didn't really expect her to reproduce last year's form but that would not even make the UK 800m final.

              She appears to be unsure of her form? She was 20m ahead at 500, looking as though she planned to stay that way. Weird. Reminded me of a Webb race.

                Really??? Has Webb EVER died like that in race? Webb usually starts the way he finishes it...........either strong or weak.

                  Yep. 2005 WC, after his sprint to take the lead. And other times.

                      I remember that race, he didn't look NEARLY as bad as Jelimo did in this race. He had a terrible strategy in the race.

                        So it seems no one has a defined reason for her poor form?

                        Since she just got married I will blame her new husband.


                        Hey it works for me! :P

                          The only more absurdly awful than Jelimo's total death with 200 meters to go was Jelimo's geometrically idiotic dash for the inner-lane that lengthened her race by a good several meters for no reason whatsoever instead of taking a wider angle towards the inner lane. Someone needs to teach that girl some basic geometry, damn.
