    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!!

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Not an easy-to-answer question
    IAAF is currently splitting the difference in a very IAAF way, not having either a good business model or parity for athletes in all events.

    T&F retro-purists like the current model, because without it, some events would hardly ever be presented. Color me out-of-touch-with-economic-reality, but I want to keep all the events we have.

    Not a DL, but a good meet with history. The fields are mostly B+, but the m1500 seems to have all the usual suspects, incl. T Cher.
    Rest of start lists.

    https://www.istaf.de/en/0/starterliste.html

    On NBC Gold starting at 10am East Coast.
    Or A entries in B form
