    Re: Krummenacker and the 1500

    Is Sully 100%.

    I still can't believe the top miler in North America is Canadian.

    This should have waken Masaback up.

        Re: Hope for US milers 2004

        The thrust of this thread changes now since Lunn and Berryhill are only a few tenths of a second off the new "A" standard. Michigan's Nick Willis is only a fraction off the pace. Grant Robison now has the A standard. Robison was the one bright spot for US miling last year. Lets hope 2004 is Robison's year to shine. The US desperately needs a solid 3:51 - 3:52 miler. Robison may fit that bill


        Hopefully, Lunn can recover from his disappointing showing in Paris last year.

        Berryhill
        Stember / Robison

        Wouldn't it be nice if the winning time was 3:35 instead of 3:43. Maybe a rabbit can be called in to ensure that the A standard is reached off the bat. No US miler wants to travel to Europe in a desperate move to get either the A or B standard.
        Lets hope 2004 is a comeback year for US milers.

        It is a clean slate.

          No go on the rabbits.

          Athletes would have to have proper rabbit representation in all events - including the field events.

          100m runners would need a flyer who starts at just at the allowable.

          200m runners would need someone to pull the athletes through the curve.

          400m runners would need someone to get the group through the curve and into the straight.

          Each of those groups would need an extra lane.

          Field eventers would need 2,00 mps in the long and triples.

          Cross wind for one, cross wind for all in the vault and high jumps.

            Actually,

            The IAAF radified Nick Willis as 6th in 3:36.41 in this race. If you watch the tape, he beat the guy from Brazil, but the results were switched.

              Robison and Willis should make for an interesting NCAA 1500 final. There is a good chance both these runners will be representing their countries in Athens.

                Willis (and Brannen) are both redshirting outdoors;no NCAA matchup.

                  That is a shame. I guess Robison will be NCAA champ again. I think he has a better than 60% chance of making the Olympic team, epecially if you consider he already has the "A" standard.


                  US 2003 3:35 (3:53mile) gang

                  Krummenacker
                  Robison

                  Since the new "A" standard is 3:36.20; running a 3:35 again means something for US metric milers.

                    Is Robison running indoors?

                      <<I find it staggering that a 3:53 mile (3:34 1500m) is the A standard. This basically eliminates a whole contingent of NCAA runners from competition. Are we now suppose to shrug are shoulders when someones runs a 3:53 mile and say "not bad". Jason Lunn's PR is now the new qualifying "A' standard. What are they trying to prove.
                      How are smaller coutries like Japan and Sweden suppose to get qualifiers.
                      This new standard basically assures a nearly all African final.>>

                      Well that is why they changed the standard to 3:36.20. The IAAF was probably saying what you said in this post. The 3:34.20 "A" standard was a mockery.

                        Is Berryhill running indoors as well?
