    This event is a bit of a lottery though :?
    i kind of agree with that but i don't think she can be definate favourite if he's 'only' running 1.56/7 there are plenty of runners who can potentially run that time and we have no idea how Jelimo competes in close races and nor does she, we have only ever seen here run away from fields and win my miles. i wouldn't bet against Benhassi's tactical brilliance and finish in a 1.56/7 race

    be afraid
    While she's rounding into shape, she's 4 seconds off where she would have been last year, so the question now is is she prepared to go 3 rounds in Berlin? And the other question is Jepkosgei's shape.
    I am starting to mull over my medal picks for a prediction contest I am doing and the women's 800m is going to be very tough......
    i agree and right now i would go with benhassi but although 1.59 is a long way from 1.54 Jelimo won't need to be in 1.54 shape to win in Berlin and someone with her amaaaaaaaaazing talent 1.56 is not o far away i wouldn't be at all suprised if she run such a time inthe very near future and is back in top shape in a months time

    1:46.20 for Leo
    Very nice! Will he make the final in Berlin? Lomong on the other hand is going the other way.

    Riley wins the B heat in 13:21.65. Tim Nelson sets a pb of 13:24.87 in finishing second, ahead of Abdi, then Vaughn, both 13:26, and then Quigley in 13:28. Bauhs also sets a pb of 13:28.92.
    Edited to reflect altered results.

    I believe this ties Teg with Lagat in having run three sub 13:08 5000s. The only other U.S. runner with this many sub 13:08 5000s is Kennedy, who is in double digits.
