    Was this the first race between Mr. Kaki and Mr. Borzakovskiy at 800m outdoors?
    They were both in the 800 in Oslo. Mr. B won, Mr. K DNF.

    Gray 1:42.80
    Everett 1:43.67
    Parilla 1:43.97
    Kersh 1:44.00

    And the look on Kersh's face afterward was haunting...I still remember it!

    One of the best 800m races I seen in a looong time!

    I just hope Robinson and Symmonds can make some headway in Berlin and possibly make the final. From there its anyone's race!
    There's a reason he looked haunted - that was the second trials in a row where Kersh came that close and ended up fourth. Less than a tenth of a second from being a two-time Olympian, and he never made the team at all.
    I agree, it happened in successive years and I really think it made him hang up the spikes. He was extremely talented though, so I wish he hadn't as he cut his career short IMO.

    Nice effort by Mr. Symmonds. Anyone ready to let these guys actually get to Berlin before writing them off? Was this the first race between Mr. Kaki and Mr. Borzakovskiy at 800m outdoors?

    That statement could have been elaborated on a bit further, as in "Wohlhuter's 1974 WR (converted from 1:44.1y) still looks good on that list after 35 years."

    Its not that important what you do in the little buildup meets. Showtime cometh. I believe its called...mmm...The World Championships? Yeah that's it, i'm sure. And the world will be watching or at least a few hundred diehard track fans. :cry:

    I did say I couldn't wait for the Borzy-Symmonds showdown! ops: :wink:

    Well done to Nick. Now to see how he handles the rounds-the challenge that has been to the detirment of many top runners.

    Kaki can be vulnerable off a slow pace as we saw in the olys when he failed to make the final.
    I'm not sure what was wrong with Kaki in Beijing, but it appeared to have nothing to do with a slow pace.
    I believe it turned out to be a bad case of turista.[/quote:2ot925uj]

    Kaki was so vulerable to a slow pace he ran 1:50 something, that's slow.

    9. 1:43.84 Alan Webb (Nike) 7/28/07

    =10. 1:43.92 James Robinson (ICAC) 6/19/84
    =10. 1:43.92 David Krummenacker (adidas) 8/30/02
    Of those ahead of Robinson and Symmonds, five (all but David Mack, who I guess distinguished himself in other ways) earned either WC or OG medals (all bronze). Perhaps Robinson and/or Symmonds can add to that.
