    Also Efraimson's 4:24.82 PB (= 4:05.20), compared to her best 1500s, is a solid mark. She has run two better - 4:03.39 (2014) and 4:04.75 (2017), I think.
    It was cool to see the young German phenom and Alexa finally match up! Alexa looked like she had her beat until the last couple meters. Great race!

        I remember the 2016 showdown at the NCAAs between her and Elise Cranny, which Pen Freitas won by less than 0.01s in 4:09-something, a PR for both at the time. But 2 years later, Cranny still hasn't broken 4:09.

          Nor had pen Freitas at the end of her outdoor eligibility for NCAA competition.

            But she improved to 4:06 less than a month after her final NCAA season in 2016, which Cranny hasn't done in the 2+ months since this year's NCAA outdoor season ended.

            To be fair, she's had to deal with the academic workload of the last 2 years of a degree at an elite university, whereas MPF could dedicate herself fully to training as a pro.

            In this short interview, she said she's going back to Stanford in the fall to take a few classes and run cross country, even though she already graduated in June.

              This was the highlight of the meet for me. I've never seen anything like it. I'm so glad to be able to see this meet on TV. And for R. Harting to throw 64.95 for his last ever competition throw, to build upon his 63.50m throw, leapfrog into 2nd and only just losing to his brother was awesome!!
