    I like Clayton Murphy but I believe doubling (even more with this heat) with 3 800s and 2 1500s in 4 (?) days is madness. Right now he should be a medal contender at 800m for WC... I feel he won't do well in either of them. It's too tough. Neither Dibaba nor Ayana could successfully double at WC (even if there it was 15/50 and 5/10) and were toasted in the latter race.

      The 800m ends first before the 1500m heats start in WCs. So doesn't really matter for Murphy. I believe he is talented to make both teams and reach finals for both events at WC as well.

        Despite Centro's monster talent and savvy, I'd've picked Murphy to win this, if I didn't agree that the double in this heat is too much.

          Robby Andrews always underrated. If he's in shape he'll be on the podium. Is this Leo's last ride?

            I also think Murphy could outrun Centro if the latter is not in top shape. But having to run a 800 heat then a 1500 heat then a 800 semifinal and so on with this heat is asking too much from his body. I hope he proves me wrong.

                  Looks like a protest on Hunter

                    Looks like after a l-o-o-ng delay, they left Hunter in and added Saarel as a 4th little "q."

                      Just now hearing about Hunter.
                      What's the deal?
                      I looked at the results of each heat, and he had the 3rd fastest "losing" time.
                      So why did they want to DQ him?
                      And why add Saarel?

                        If it starts as 3 laps of jockeying Robby will rob them !

                          In the end he was not DQed. Not sure having 13 in the race is necessarily a bad thing, it might spur some to push harder earlier. There are three really good finishers here with Centrowitz, Murphy and Andrews so the likes of Blakenship might have to push the pace from half way at least.

                            Hunter was pinballing it a bit during the race and was involved with what looked like a couple of mishaps. Didn't see who was involved and didn't feel like going back to look so one of them may have been Saarel.
