      What an 800m! Al Sahli was wading through the water in the home straight. Can't believe Borza nicked it again from that far back!

        Yea crazy race 49.4 first lap. Borza looks on form, not a killer time but really an astounding kick.

          I am in shock at the times from the Irish guys. 1.45.4 for both of them :shock: Huge pb's and considering our national record is 1'44.8 it's hugely exciting. Campbell had to zig-zag all down the straight stopping and starting as he went for the inside line, then had to go back outside. So, with that in mind....both are clearly capable of sub 1.45 :shock: :lol:

          What is KILLING me however, is the fact that Chamney ran 1'45.41 when the A standard is 1.45.40....ergo, both guys only have the B standard so far and only one could go to worlds. Fingers corssed they find themselves in a few more quality races and get their times down some more!

                  Back in the pack, Claesson PB'd by 0,07. He's in a 1.46,4ish rut (not that a PB classifies as one!), having run 1.46,36 - 1.46,43 - 1.46,43 - 1.46,46 in his four-fastest races.

                    I hope that the WC 800 men's final is way more exciting than the last one.Can't believe a crazy slow time of 1:47 I believe won it.

                      Anyone have an update?


                      It could just be a cramp and look worse than it is.

                        Yes, according to IAAF:

                        It was later confirmed by his coach that he had sustained a hamstring cramp and that had led to him falling to the deck. ... Thankfully after lying motionless on the track for most of the race with a medical team in attendance, the 20-year-old got to his feet and aided, walked off.
                        From an IAAF meet account croflash posted earlier.

                          THAT OPENING SPLIT OF 49.4 SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHING KIPKETER WOULD RUN

                            It is common courtesy around here (and on the internet in general) to refrain from "yelling" in all caps.

                              Yes, except Kipketer would close in 52/53.
