    Erin Donohue - a pretty good runner in her own right. She's done 4:05 this year. I have to agree, though, she looks very heavy for a 1500 runner.

      I believe Jamal ran the final 300 in around 43.5 :!:

        I suppose the British decision was right but great runs from the Brits.

        Dobriskey 4:02.28
        Twell 4:03.48 PB
        England 4:04.29 PB

          Dobriskey, Twell, then England, all in quick times.
          The UKA are lying in a quivering puddle on the floor somewhere, exhausted but relieved.

            Dobriskey ran an awful race really...she HAS to be more involved if she's going to do any damage with her finish at the Worlds, but I guess she's feeling her way there at the moment, post-injury. That was very encouraging that she could run a 4:02 like that...only just off her PB remember!

                She was a useful high school javelin thrower; believe she also scored in the ACC one year.

                  Willard may have a hard time medaling in Berlin.

                  She should have run the 800 at the US Trials.

                    She's lighter than she was in her collegiate days.

                        Willard

                        Very out of position with 400 to go - on the rail and didnt pull through and go with the leaders. I mean she is reading their numbers at 500 and just lets them get away. A medal will be a challenge, but Im hopeful she can get in a tactical race and work the kick

                        I think wurth-thomas actually has more guts and instinct after seeing this race. Rowberry is still a wildcard too. All in all we may see three from USA in final or well, "none" who knows

                          per USATF.COM

                          ERIN DONOHUE
                          Events: 800m, 1,500m
                          Height: 5-7
                          Weight: 143

                          ok, so she is about 2x burka in mass

                          Really though, all props to her I think the 4:05 is a 3 sec improvement over last year and in Osaka she ran 4:16 in a SF. Running 3 flat for 1100 today is pretty dang good too

                            I'm a bit disappointed in Willard...this was the perfect race for her to join Barringer and Wurth-Thomas in the sub 4:00 club...

                              In the arms and legs, possibly, but I thought she still carries a lot of excess baggage around the waist for a distance runner.

                                Comparable to Anna Willard from her pre-Michigan days. I don't remember her when she competed for Brown, and would definitely not have recognized her from this photo:
