  • 800m Men

    Here we go.
    400m pace going through in 50,48
    600m 1.17,8 Ismail
    Winning time: 1.44.80 For Ismail-Mulaudzi and (ed.) Lewandowski

    Ismalil parked himself behind the two pacers from the start and then held on to the top spot with only Mulaudzi asking the question during the homestraight.
    Gary Reed was third until the final meters but fell back to 4th.

    Wasn't Vincent Mumo the 600 pacer?

    And what about Lagat's time? 1.46.84 SB

        Where are you getting the results from? And did Gary Reed get his "A" standard (1:45.40)?

            On the nose, it seems.

              Wow, I hope that time holds up....Hard to believe that Gary was not selecteable yet. However, if he hit the "A" today, he's on the team...

                I can honestly say I never even thought about whether Gary had the A standard yet..... ops:
                If it is 1:45.40 that is EXACTLY what he ran.

                I thought it was an excellent race-he is slowly but surely getting his finishing speed in place.

                Anyone who knows Gary and his coach know they have this season planned perfectly.

                            I'm here. Lagat ran about two seconds faster than in his heat at USAT&F, so he should be ready in the event of another pair of races with a 1:50 final 800 needed to win. He ran 7:35.92 to defeat Shaheen at Pre and Bekele seems to be at less than 100%, so I think that Lagat is on track for a medal (gold perhaps) or two at Berlin.
                            none

                              Perhaps, indeed.

                              However, I'm still looking for that guarantee that he'll run 1.44-1.45. I really don't believe two laps at two sprints is his thing, though he has been able to sprint really fast over the last two laps following someone else for 700m. Lagat seems periously close to being one guy who will never have reached a semblance of his 800m potential when using his own 800m races as a guide. Yesterday's was ANOTHER 1.46 in a 1.44 race.
