    I didn't even know Chris Giesting was an 800m guy at all.

      He moved up to the 800 last year. Ran mostly 800s in 2017 and thus far nothing but 800s this year, including the USATF championships outdoors last year and indoors this year.

          I believe only the first place team consisted of four Americans.

                BU never fails to deliver.
                Also yesterday there was a Japanese record in the mile and the 1st ever indoor D-III sub-4.

                  It will be interesting to see if he arrives anywhere. Till now, he seems to be running the usual path of 400m specialists moving up. This works this way: you are a good but not world class 400m specialist (45/46 400m) but you ran great at 500s and 600s. You are even a decent 800m runner (sub 1'50) without "specific" preparations. You start to figure you could make some damages at 800. You change completely your training plan: more mileage, less weights, more long runs and so on. You run decent times at 800 but your 400 is not shitty. You go on like this until you "disappear" from the radars. Giesting ran 47.71 400m last year. Two full seconds slower than his best.

                  Look at Brandon Johnson... his best 800m year was his first. The problem, imho, is that there is a reason if one is running 400s. Being a 400m runner with good "endurance" means nothing. Curtis Beach ran 1'47 of 400/decathlon training. Do you really think he could run 1'44 just running 80 miles/week?

                    Kind of a footnote to all the other list-worthy performances, but still worth mentioning -- Emily Sisson's 15:13.76 is #10 a-t US indoor performance. (She already has 2 other marks on that list.)
