    Looks like Abubaker Kaki is going after the 1000 m world record.

      "It should be an interesting race. Eight-time U.S. 800 champ (four times indoors, four times outdoors) Khadevis Robinson is serving as pace-setter. Meet director Tom Jordan says Robinson is planning to take the field through 800 in 1:45."

      If KD could take the field through in 1:45 as a rabbit and thus could run 1:44.x in an open 800 right now, he would not be rabbiting this race, I do not think. He might hope to do 650-720m at this pace though.

        That means the last 200 is going to have to be run in under 26sec. Seems like a long shot for 800 runners like Nick and probably not good odds for Kaki. I would think if Nick is at 1:47x he is not going to have much in the tank to do a 26x for the American record. Is a 26x something Nick can do after and 800 of 1:47x?

          There are two pace setters. Scherer and K.D.I think TJ has it figured out.

            Wohlhuter was a WR holder and an Olympic medalist. Symmonds is not in his class. I would be thrilled to be proved wrong.

              More importantly....in terms of the times RW ran....he's faster at the longer distance...which I think is pretty important.
