      Wow--- that pre-OG topic about the OG 800 was the longest by far- EVERYBODY seemed to have something to say... and now that the Games have started, NOBODY has anything to say, save for Epelle.
      I find that kind of funny. Maybe everybody exhausted themselves about Symmonds and Rudisha and journeymen and distractions and all that. :lol:

        One thing can be said: That OG record, a very very good one, sure seems to be coming to a close.

                  Heat 4
                  Symmonds got off quickly. Borzakovskiy off in 2nd to last
                  200m: Bube led; Kczot in 3rd
                  400m: 52,53 (Borzakovskiy high 53)
                  600m: 1.19,69 Kczot lead with Symmonds in 3rd
                  Home: Symmonds forced his way to the front the final 40m and wins in 1.45,91. Borzakovskiy (1.46,29) failed to finish in the auto Q spots; he's the 3rd fastest loser with three remaining heats. Kczot (1.45,99), near the finish line, looked around and ensured he was top-3.

                    Kszczot wasn't looking too strong either. I mean I didn't think Borzakovskiy could win another medal, but I also didn't expect that he wouldn't even get out of the first round (unless all of the remaining races are slower ). That fast race in Monaco a couple of weeks ago has really jumbled the heats, the distribution is uneven.

                            KD was really flat. No lift at all down the homestretch,
