Brussels was the final stop on the 2010 Diamond League stop and it was full of great action. Since our fans love the distance races we start with recaps of them  first.

Women's 5,000: Huddle Gets The American Record (And Finishes 10th)

Molly Huddle's decision to stay longer in Europe longer paid off in a big way, as she got the American record by the narrowest of margins - .04.

The subplot in this race was Sentayehu Ejigu and world champ Vivian Cheruiyot competing for the Diamond League title. A win by either one would get the title and the $40,000.

Nearly the entire field was still in contact in this race until the final laps. With three laps to go, Brit Stephanie Twell and American Molly Huddle started to fall off as nine people were still in the lead pack. At the bell, at least seven were still in contention but by 300, it was clearly a 3-woman race. By 150, it was a 2-person race between the Diamond League leaders Ejigu and Cheruiyot. The last 100 was for $40,000. Cheruiyot pulled away down the homestretch, showing why she was the world champion last year. Ejigu would fade to third.

The runners kept streaming across the finish line and it was a race against the clock. Molly Huddle crossed in 10th and when the time was posted she had just done enough. 14:44.76, .04 ahead of Shalane Flanagan's old AR. For Huddle, the run justified her decision to stay in Europe and not run the Bix 7 miler, where a $12,000 payday was on the line. It also culminated a great season where she lowered her 5k PR by 33 seconds (she ran 15:17 back in 2007).

The 10th place finish also shows how competitive women's distance running has become with the recent infusion of Kenyan talent. Five Kenyan women finished ahead of Huddle on Friday. Fortunately for Huddle, only 3 of them can run in the World Championships. Prior to the 2007 World Champs, the Kenyan women had 7 medals ever on the track at all the Olympics and World Champs combined. At the last World Champs, they had 6 medals on the track.

Finishing 11th in 14:54.08 was the British hope for the future in 21-year-old Stephanie Twell.

Molly Huddle Post-Race Interview Via Her Agent Flynn Sports And Flotrack: "That was just a good no-pressure situation." Huddle adds, "I just tried to compete and fortunately the pace was perfect for me so it just worked out. Going into it, I was like, 'If I run faster, I run faster. If not, I've had a great season.' So I think it was just a great no-pressure situation."

Men's 1,500: Kiprop Wins As Manzano Gives Him A Little Scare
2008 Olympic champion Asbel Kiprop's return to racing for the first time since he captured the African championships on August 1st was a successful one, as he captured the race and Diamond League title as well in a seasonal best of 3:32.18. Finishing in the runner-up position was American Leo Manzano, who ran a fantastic last 100 to move up from sixth to second. His runner-up time of in 3:32.37 was a significant new personal best for Manzano, as his previous PR was 3:33.33.

Leo is coming

The race was rabbitted for the first 800 by former world indoor champion David Krummenacker of the USA. Krummenacker did a good job as he took the first lap in 54.37, with the bulk of the field in the 55 to 56 range (Manzano was very close to 56-flat). He reached 800 in 1:52.66 but by this point, it was clear the top runners in the field like Kiprop weren't worried about a top time as they weren't right on the rabitt but were worried about getting the win as the Diamond League title was on the line for Kiprop and eventual third placer Augstine Choge, as Kiprop came into the race with 14 points and Choge 11. Since there was a four point difference between first and second (8 vs. 4), the winner of the race would be the Diamond League victor.

Kiprop himself effortlessly had moved to the lead just before the 200 meter mark and Choge put up little to challenge Kiprop down the final stretch as he pulled away. Heading into the last lap, Manzano was just in 7th and with 200 to go, he was just in 6th but he charged like a mad man the last 50 meters and closed a ton on Kiprop the last 30m. Kiprop got the win by .19 but if the race had been another 10 meters, maybe just another 5, then the  unthinkable might have happened with Manzano coming out on top (unless Kiprop was saving something in reserve). British announcer Tim Hutchings summed it up best: "For Leo Manzano, there is plenty more in the tank. The American seems to be getting better and better with each race ... He could have taken that one if he had been a little more confident a little more closer (when he started his charge)."

Finishing in 5th was former NCAA runner-up and Florida State Seminole Tom Lancashire, who dipped under the 3:34 barrier for the first time. Lancashire lowered his PR from 3:34.29 to 3:33.96.

Kiprop and Choge will be back at it Sunday racing in Rieti, along with world champ Yusuf Kamel and 1,500m sensation Silas Kiplagat in what may be the best 1,500m battle on the European circuit this year.

Women's 800: Caster Semenya Loses As Janeth Jepkosgei Wins Diamond League Title
Caster Semenya
's return to big-time action was spoiled by 2007 world champion (as well as 2008 Olympic and 2009 World Championships silver medalist) Janeth Jepkosgei, who got the win in 1:58.82. 2009 world champion, Caster Semenya, who had been absent from the major circuit since winning last year's world title as the controversy with her gender was sorted out, ran a tactically poor race but managed to move up late and finish third in a seasonal best of 1:59.65.

The race started fast as Ireland's Karen Shinkins took the field through 400 in 56.12. Semenya went straight to the back at the start of the race but still came through 400 in the 58-second range. The problem was she then tried to move up at 400 and there was a lot of traffic  By 600 (1:28.03), Semenya was only up to 7th place in the field, which featured 12 starters and 10 finishers. She certainly had a lot of work to do in the last 200 and in the end it proved too much for Semenya, who ran basically the entire final 600 outside of lane 1.

With 150 to go, as Semenya started to move up, we wondered if she was toying with the field as some had thought she did in Berlin on Sunday, but in the last 100, it was clear she wasn't going to win. In the last 100, it was a three-person battle between the class of the field in terms of 2010 form in Jepkosgei, 2010 European champion Mariya Savinova and 2010 world leader Alysia Johnson. Jepkosgei's win over Savinova (2nd in 1:59.49) was significant as it also resulted in her taking the Diamond League title and its $40,000 first prize. Johnson faded a bit at the end and was caught by Semenya. Johnson's fourth place time was 1:59.89.

Of course Semenya's performance and late surge has some of you wondering whether: Semenya tanked on purpose?

Men's 800: World Record Holder David Rudisha Holds Off A Challenge From Abubaker Kaki
The second matchup of the year between newly-minted world record holder David Rudisha and his chief rival Abubaker Kaki certainly lived up to the hype. Kaki pulled up on Rudisha's shoulder with just over 100 meters to go but the last straight was all Rudisha, who got the win in to 1:43.50 to Kaki's 1:43.84.

The race started fast as the first 400 was covered in 49.23. Rudisha was inside a bit boxed in second or third but the rabbit stepped off before the 450 mark and instantly Rudisha was perfectly in the front, as he moved up on the inside. Rudisha then slowed things down and hit 600 in 1:16.86. It certainly seemed as if Rudisha was conserving something for the finish and practicing finishing a tactical race off hard as he'll probably have to do in the World Championships. Finish it off well he did, as when Kaki pulled up on his shoulder in the final 150, Rudisha was able to respond and pull away to get the win. Although his win was certainly comfortable, by no means was Rudisha's win utterly dominant, and it seems as if in the years to come, the two may have a great rivalry.

"I'm very happy that I did 1:43 comfortably," said Rudisha to the BBC.

Women's Steeple: World Junior Record For Almaz Ayana, PR For US Champ Aguilera

Milcah Chemos Cheiywa had the Diamond League title wrapped up and battled for the win with Sofia Assefa. The biggest news was perhaps the World Junior record by Almaz Ayana in third.

US Champ Lisa Aguilera, the former American record holder, got a personal best. (Jenny Barringer's current US record is 9:12.50).

Men's Steeple: Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad Wins

It may be a shock to see a European ahead of a Kenyan in the steeple, but Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad was the Olympic silver medalist. The run here was over a 4-second PR. Paul Koech had won the DL title last week in Zürich as the steeple here was not part of the DL.

Men's 100: Tyson Gay Runs Under 9.80 Yet Again
The gun times may show that Tyson Gay had the fastest reaction time of anyone in the field, but the eyes certainly revealed that his start was far from ideal. Behind at 50 meters, Gay came on strong and took the title in his second sub-9.80 clocking of the year as he won in 9.79. Gay had to run well to win, as Jamaica's 20-year-old Nesta Carter ran the race of his short career to get second in 9.85 (It was Carter's 3rd run (2 legal) under 9.90 this year).

Gay told the BBC after the race that his start was affected by a false start scare when the field was called back on the first attempt to get the race going. During that scare, the commentators - as well as us here at LetsRun.com - thought it looked like Gay was the one who had twitched but the field was given a green light.

"It think my mind got boggled because of the false start," said Gay.

Women's 100m Hurdles:  Priscilla Lopes Schliep Comes Through Under Pressure

Lolo Jones and Priscilla Lopes Schliep were tied atop the DL standings heading into this race, so this race was for $50,000 ($10,000 for the race win and $40,000 for the DL win). Lopes-Schliep won it easily, as Jones continued her second-half slide (this was her fifth straight race without a win).

Women's 200m: Another Win For Felix With Veronica Campbell Brown Absent

Veronica Campbell Brown - despite having the top 100 and 200m times in the world this year - has largely bypassed the Diamond League this year (that means it likely was about her not getting a big enough appearance fee).

In her absence, Allyson Felix just keeps winning. Felix has only lost once all year (in June the one time VCB and her raced at 200m) at 200 or 400.

Shot Put: Reese Hoffa Goes Long
Diamond League winner Christian Cantwell put up a meet record on his last throw of the night, but he was one-upped by Reese Hoffa, who got the win with his final toss of 22.16. Cantwell already had the DL title wrapped up, so he picked up the $40,000, but it was his 2nd loss in 3 performances after starting out 2010 undefeated.

Women's High Jump: Blanka Vlašic Completes Perfect DL Season
Vlašic went over 2.00m again and got the DL title as Chaunte Howard Lowe - her nemesis for much of the year - decided to skip the final Diamond League meet.

Vlašic may wish the Diamond League was still the Golden League with it's million dollar prize, as she went a perfect 7-for-7 in DL events.
