    Is Kaki now out of the WC?

    Almost seems like it :?
    Anyone have an update?


    It could just be a cramp and look worse than it is.
    Kaki is in Paris Startlist

    That would be one. It is hard to gauge and evaluate (in the 800 even more so than in other races) if it would have been possible and if, how much faster he could have run. He had four years of sub 1.43 runs, that is pretty remarkable.

    You just might be right there. He's ahead of Bungei at 1.000m (2.17,27 to 2.18,60), and did run faster than has Bungei at 400m -- 46,3 to 46,99. However, he is behind at 800m -- 1.42,34 to 1.42,60. He certainly had the endurance (3.42,43).

    Which of his races at 800m would you have suspected could have been run faster? Should he have actually split low 50-point or high-49 in that 1.42,60 run?

    Looking back though, you get the feeling that he could have achieved more or run even faster at one point.

    Yea crazy race 49.4 first lap. Borza looks on form, not a killer time but really an astounding kick.
    THAT OPENING SPLIT OF 49.4 SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHING KIPKETER WOULD RUN
    Or Johnny Gray :wink:

    That's why Kipketer is in a class by himself with his three 1.41 times; neither Coe (49,7) nor Cruz (49,6) had gone that fast the first lap of their lifetime best races. The pacing in friday's event wasn't optimal for the resulting time for the winner (Borzakovskiy ran his own race as usual), though had Kaki remained in the hunt, this opening lap time may have made more sense.
    A phenomenal athlete he was indeed. I remember he finished that WR 800 in Cologne in '97 like it was a walk in the park and dropped the entire field.

    Yes, except Kipketer would close in 52/53.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.
