    Re: Men's 200...way to go Frankie!

    Sorry, but 2.03 is 6-8. See Louise Ritter's AR. Tafnut, you got it on the nose! And congrats on your other great picks! (I also would have picked Heshko in the 1500. I did pick Mutua in the 800. He was 3rd in the Kenyan Trials, but with their new selection system he must run like a demon in Europe to secure his spot for Athens.)

    (Iaaf text report has Sles at 2.02, but the results table has the correct 2.03.)

    I think that BRN stands for Bahrain, not Brunei. There have been rumors of Bahrain recently giving citizenship to African runners a la Qatar.

    Frankie Fredericks will be 37 years old this October. On the men's side of things, I can't think of anyone performing at that age at his current level. L. Christie won gold at 32 and kept going awhile, but this guy rocks!!

    Don't get me started on Merlene Ottey.

    and
    1 Lebedeva Tatyana RUS 15.33 +1.2

    she's the female Edwards of this decade - so consistently excellent!

    Mutola :-(
    Fredericks :-)

    btw - Sles's height was 2.03 - now what is that in feet and inches . . .?

    Yet El G definitely did not have his last lap kick of old. If he doesn't recover by the time of the Olympic Games, this is going to really shake things up.

    Now Mutola has been defeated tonight for the first time in almost two years!

    "El Guerrouj is now on his final 300m with a massive lead over the field...but he suddenly looks to be slowing down and Kenya's national champion is hunting him down!!! It's very close, VERY CLOSE!!! El Guerrouj is fighting, he's not giving up like in Rome...he crosses the line in 3:32.21 for one of his closest victories ever!!!"

    Yay for El G!
