    Yes, and likewise the USA...why are guys like Rutt and Johnson running over 1:48?

    Yes, according to the IAAF published splits. However, his Kenyan counterpart ran similar splits (50.0-57.9), so both were equally poor in pacing. btw, his Kenyan counterpart (Job Koech) had a slightly faster PR (1:43.76 vs 1:43.84) than Brandon.

    Must have been a typo - you just can't trust a keyboard these days
    Did better on the w4x1500 with my predicted 16:34. Had better control of the keyboard

    If I'm interpreting these correctly:
    Rutt: 1:48.6, Andrews: 1:47.2, Johnson: 1:48.1 and Solomon: 1:45.2
    As my boss used to say "what am I wood?" :lol:

    Wow, Jordy Williamsz with a 1:46.3. It should be interesting to see what he'll be able to do in the 4x1500. Nevertheless, it looks like he's in pretty good shape.

    what a coincidence! all the splits are round numbers! (i.e., they never should have been represented in 100ths; transponder times only good for 10ths.)

    He ran his type of race. Running any other way puts him on his own and out of his comfort zone. No one runner lost the race.
