        actually it looks like Mo did pretty well. Hopefully he's on the Road Back.

          those were the events that impressed me the most both high hurdles (johnson and devers winning), coby miller in the 200 (too bad he did not do well at usatf) and the 400 h where sanchez left everyone in the dust. mo lost (as i expected) both to aliu and williams, but there is still a lot of time left till paris...

            For those of you not able to see the Lausanne meet on TV, note that Coby Miller ran his 20.04 from the inside lane (Jed are you reading this ?)

            Bucher was 5th or 6th with 70m to go, and hemmed in on the inside. He will improve to sub 1:43 later in the season, while Bungei may fade (he's been almost unbeatable so far, but excessive racing may take its toll.

            Stephen Cherono beat his 1500pb by 5 seconds, but never looked like threatening the specialists

            Bekele ran his last lap in 52.63. The TV commentators played this down as a fast finish in a tactical race, but it was a more impressive piece of running than his 5k in Oslo had been.

            What a wonderful athlete Allen Johnson is. A world leading 13.06 for the veteran, who knocks down more hurdles with less detrimental effect than anyone in the history of the event (other than Roger Kingdom). He needed his 13.06, as Olijars was a terrific runner-up.

            Discount the slowness of the womens' 100. It took place in a torrential downpour. In good conditions they would have been 0.20 quicker.

            Foster was closing fast on Devers in the latter stages of the 100h, but faltered, leaving D a clear winner.

              What do you mean "For those of you not able to see the Lausanne meet on TV" ? Was anyone over here able to see it on tv ?

                Who do you know richardh was in the US? In fact, I'd be willing to bet big money he's "across the pond."
