June 2, 2012

Day 2 of the Prefontaine Classic saw a 12.87 wind-aided hurdles by Liu Xiang, a 49.39 400m by Sanya Richards-Ross, a Bowerman Mile win by Asbel Kiprop, Mo Farah winning the 5,000m with Galen Rupp going sub-13:00 for the first time, and LaShawn Merritt beating Kirani James in the 400m.

Full LRC recap below with distance races first. For a recap of Friday's day 1, click here.

5,000m: Mo Farah Is Still Best In The World, Galen Rupp Joins Sub-13:00 Club

Last year, Mo Farah established himself as the best track distance runner in the world and that reign began at the Prefontaine Classic. Farah extended the reign here as he got the win in a meet record and world-leading 12:56.98, ahead of Isaiah Koech. In third place, ahead of Kenenisa Bekele, was Galen Rupp in 12:58.90, a huge personal best, and the first sub-13:00 clocking by an American on American soil.

Farah and Rupp went to the front with 800m to go and started pushing the pace. Farah ran on the inside with Rupp on the outside. John Kipkoech went down on the turn as the pace was being increased. The fall, and the 60.20 lap, made it a four-man affair between Rupp, Farah, Koech, and Thomas Longosiwa at the bell. Kenenisa Bekele was the first chaser in fifth.

Farah continued to push around the first turn onto the back stretch and opened up a gap on Rupp as Isaiah Koech went around Rupp into second. Longosiwa would not be a factor on the final lap. Farah and Koech started pulling away from Rupp. As they rounded the final turn, Farah had a lead on Koech and Farah would keep it until the finish. Galen Rupp was now racing the clock as the Hayward Field crowd had stayed on its feet, captivated by his earlier effort to push the pace the last 800m. Rupp dipped under the 13:00 barrier with ease in 12:58.90 as Kenenisa Bekele moved up to pass Longosiwa in a distant fourth in 13:01.48.

Rupp Joins The Club
Afterwards, Rupp said breaking 13:00 was a "bonus" and that his goal was to compete. He said, "It sounds boring but I just came here to compete. ... It took me a while to break 4 minutes in the mile and it didn't mean I wasn't in good shape (implying the time is secondary)."

Rupp definitely was competitive, as at one point in the race he was trading elbows with Kenenisa Bekele. When asked about that Rupp said, "It's part of racing. It doesn't matter who it is. ... I just can't let him do whatever he wants because of what he's done in the past. We're in there to compete."

Rupp then spoke about Americans running fast and what it means: "It's great we've got guys running fast now, but it doesn't really matter now if it's getting us 8th place in every race. ... The next step for Americans is to get people up there competing. It's great that they're running fast and they need to be able to (run fast) obviously to be there in these races. You've got to start winning and placing high now. I think that is the next step. You definitely have to first be able to run that fast to be there (at the end of race) ..."

After the race and a cool-down, Galen Rupp and Mo Farah returned to the track and did we think at least 8 laps in lane 3 that were cumulatively sub-75 second pace (5:00 pace, but this was in lane 3). Rupp led these laps, with Farah behind him.

QT: Mo Farah is definitely the man to beat. He is excellent ant controlling the race from 1,000m out.

QT2: Galen Rupp has arrived as a contender on the world stage. Last night famed coach Renato Canova said he saw Rupp as one of the main medal contenders for 10,000m, and this run confirmed it. Rupp looked like he belonged. Not since Bob Kennedy have we seen an American-born male distance runner run in a pack believing they could compete and run with anyone. It is a new era and the exchange of elbows with Bekele was a nice little anecdote confirming it.

QT3: How times have changed. A year ago if Mo Farah and Galen Rupp faced some of the best 5,000m runners in the world, including World Record holder Kenenisa Bekele, you'd expect them to finish in the middle of the pack, with Bekele contending for the win. Now it was Farah and Rupp dictating things.

QT4: 13:01.48 is very good for Bekele. Bekele did not address the media afterwards, but being only 4 seconds back of Mo Farah 8 weeks before the Olympics has to be encouraging.

QT5: The other Americans, including Matt Tegenkamp, who went through the mixed media zone without stopping, were non-factors. Unless they improve quickly, they'll be watching London from home.

Asbel Kiprop, Mr. Bowerman Mile

Maybe they should rename the Bowerman Mile the Asbel Kiprop Mile.

For the third time in four years, Asbel Kiprop won the Bowerman mile. The only year in the last four Kiprop did not win was last year, and that was when he put himself in 8th position with a lap to go, and still managed to get third.

This year at the bell, Kiprop was in 8th as well, but the field was incredibly closely bunched as 1,200m was in a modest 2:54.36. On the backstretch, Kiprop started moving up as Worlds silver medallist Silas Kiplagat, a diminutive man, got engulfed in the pack and would not be a factor the last 200m. Kiprop kept moving up in lane two around the turn. Caleb Ndiku hit the final straight in the lead with Kiprop outside of him. It was no contest the final 100m. Kiprop got the win comfortably in 3:49.40 as Ndiku would fade to fifth. Mekonnen Gebremedhin of Ethiopia moved up for second as Djibouti's Ayanleh Souleiman had another good run in third (3:50.21).

The American-based athletes had so-so days. Nick Willis had been last for much of the race and closed well to finish 7th in 3:51.77. David Torrence of the US, who has the "A" standards in the 800, 1,500, and 5,000, had an "A" standard type performance, running 3:52.01 as the first American. Leo Manzano was next in 3:53.07, actually finishing ahead of Kiplagat. That left Americans Lopez Lomong, Bernard Lagat and Andrew Wheating, who were third to last, second to last, and last respectively, but Wheating's performance was by far the worst as he was over 1.5 seconds behind Lagat.

Wheating Reacts
Afterwards, Wheating said he had never felt like that before: "Rock bottom is a very sour taste. I've got some work to do." He added, "I've never been that far behind and unable to catch up. I came to the final lap and felt 'there is no way.' If I can't maintain this pace how am I supposed to pick it up and catch people. By 200 to go I was deflated. I've never felt that. It was a learning experience but very disappointing." Wheating hoped his coach Vin Lananna would have a better explanation and said if anything he needed to get stronger as he said, "I lost my strength after lap two." Nonetheless, if you watch the race video, you see if Wheating had had a strong last lap, he would have done okay, as the field was close to one another at the bell.

Lopez Lomong said he is still undecided what race he'll run at the US Championships. He talked at length about his incredible journey from Sudan to the US, the political situation in the South Sudan, being a sponsor for Tide, and his autobiography, which will come out a the Olympic Trials.

As for the King of the Bowerman Mile and the mile in general, Asbel Kiprop told Race Results Weekly, "It wasn't what I wanted to do today. I just wanted a faster race."

QT: Asbel Kiprop is the man. Last year he had a mental lapse and put himself too far back, but as long as the tactical errors are in the past, don't expect many guys to beat him.

QT2: Lopez Lomong and David Torrence must decide what event to run at the Trials. The 1,500/5,000 double would be very hard as round 1 of the 1,500 is the same day and before the 5,000m final. The 1,500m appears momentarily week in the US with Andrew Wheating suffering, Matt Centrowitz coming back from injury, and Alan Webb not showing his former greatness. The 5,000m is strong with Galen Rupp and Bernard Lagat two likely locks for the team. Having said that, the 5,000m seems the best bet for Lomong. He has shown more promise in that event than the 1,500m this year. As for Torrence, if Lomong opts for the 5,000m, he'd still likely be on the outside looking in, so the 1,500m might be the more likely option.

QT3: It will be interesting to see what Lagat does in the 1,500m at the adidas meet. After being outkicked by Manzano at Penn, Lagat had another subpar run here.

Men's 800m: Kaki Over Aman As Symmonds And KD Renew Their Rivalry

This was a stacked, evenly-matched field and it showed, as with 200m to go, six guys were in contention. Abubaker Kaki led and he continued to lead into the homestretch as he was followed by Adam Kszczot, who was undefeated this outdoor season. On the inside was Aman, the only man to beat David Rudisha since 2009, and further outside was Nick Symmonds. Kszczot dropped back, Symmonds could not mount his late Hayward charge and that left Kaki to battle with Aman down the stretch. Kaki drifted out to deal with the guys on his outside and that left an opening for Aman in lane 1. Kaki had just enough to hold him off.

Khadevis Robinson (KD) made a late charge to finish 4th in his outdoor solo opener in 1:44.54.

Symmonds and Robinson have been US 800m royalty for much of the last decade and they should renew their rivalry at the Trials later in the month.

Their circumstances are pretty different. There is no doubting Symmonds has had the upper hand in the rivalry lately with 4 straight US titles, and KD did not make the 2008 Olympic team. Symmonds is a full-time professional athlete while Khadevis has a side job coaching at UNLV.

While Symmonds is one of the more popular athletes in Eugene, Robinson was forced to start the race sharing a lane. When asked if sharing a lane bothered him, Khadevis, a Diamond League winner in Rome last year, hinted it did, saying, "I'm getting used to this type of stuff. If I was to tell you some of the stuff I've had to go through you'd be amazed. Top 10 in the world, won a Diamond League (last year) and this will be the only race I run in the US besides nationals."

KD was pleased overall with his opener, saying, "I'll take 1:44.5 (in) my first race, but I'm upset with myself because I can run faster." He may race in Canada before the Trials, but up first next week is the NCAA meet where he will be coaching. Khadevis said with his lack of racing at the Trials, the "rounds are going to make me sharp."

Nick Symmonds made headlines this week by asking Paris Hilton out. He talked about that afterwards, his battle to continue to get athletes more sponsorship opportunities, and of course his own running. Last year, Symmonds was dead last at Pre and came back to win the US Championships less than a month later. He heads into the Trials in much better shape this year.

QT: This one did not disappoint. Kaki and Aman were the best on paper, but the field was competitive and it showed.

QT2: KD may not get the respect he deserves, but if he wins the Olympic Trials, we guarantee he'll get it.

Women's 3,000m: The Americans Have a Long Way to Go

This race showed how far the Americans are behind the rest of the world at 5,000m.

Drug cheat Mariem Selsouli of Morocco was back from an EPO ban and it was like nothing had changed from when she was on the juice. She dominated this race. World 10,000m silver medallist Sally Kipyego may have only finished 1.5 seconds back, but Mariem was well clear of Kipyego for most of the race and Kipyego was well clear of the rest of the field.

Elizabeth Maloy, the unheralded former Georgetown runner, who has the "A" standard from last year (15:15.34), was the first American here ahead of Bri Felnagle, Lisa Uhl, Molly Huddle, Amy Hastings, Jackie Areson and Renee Baillie. Angela Bizzarri was farther back as she fights an uphill battle versus the clock to return from injury.

Renee Baillie was very happy with her race as she has only been running for four weeks. After Achilles surgery last year, she returned this year and did the US Cross-Country Champs before suffering more injuries. Everything is healthy now and Baillie said she hopes to get the Olympic "A" standard next week.

QT: The Trials are wide open at 5,000m.

QT2: We have no problem with Mariem Selsouli running the Pre Classic. Why Nike sponsors her is another matter.

Editor's addition: LetsRun.com co-founder Robert Johnson  says he does have a problem with Selsouli competing. EPO can't be innocently explained ingested. In his mind certifiable "intentional doping" should result in a lifetime ban or at least 4 years. Also it's disgraceful that she can find a lane in a Diamond League event but someone like KD has trouble.

Women's Steeple: Milcah Chemos Keeps Winning, Parker And Coburn Get Huge PRs

Milcah Chemos showed once again why she won the Diamond League last year as she sprinted away from Ethiopian rivals Sofia Assefa and Hiwot Ayalew for the win, world leader, and meet record in  9:13.69.

Brit Barbara Parker ran in no-man's land for much of the race and was rewarded with a huge PR and national record of 9:24.24. The previous record was Helen Clitheroe's 9:29.14, and Parker's previous PR was 9:35.17.

2011 US Champ Emma Coburn, who is redshirting at the University of Colorado, followed Parker to a huge PR of her own, running 9:25.28, while her previous best was 9:37.16.

Afterwards (interviews below), Parker and Coburn both talked about running in the nine teens in the future. Whereas Coburn talked about it as a goal in the future, and said everything this year is focused on the Olympic Trials, Parker said her goal this year is an Olympic medal. If you don't dream it first, it can't happen. She said she believes she is in sub-15:00 5,000m shape.

Men's 110 Hurdles Liu Xiang 12.87!!!

This was an Olympic final type field minus Dayron Robles, who will make his US debut at the adidas meet next week.

Liu Xiang showed he is the man to beat as he ran 12.87, which would have equalled the world record if the wind had not been 2.4 meters per second.

Aries Merritt's resurgent 2012 continued as he held up under the pressure and went sub-13.00.

QT: We hope shoe politics are not what kept Robles out of this meet. If Robles (an adidas guy) won at Pre, we can't think of better marketing for adidas.

Women's 400m: SRR Is Back

Sanya Richards-Ross is back. Richards-Ross faced world leader Novlene Williams-Mills and World Champion Amantle Montsho, but there was no doubting SRR was best today as she ran a fast 49.39 on the cool day for the most impressive wind legal performance of the day in any event.

Afterwards, SRR said her goal was to win and that is what she was concerned about, but the time was so fast that she was really pleased with that as well. This was her fastest time since 2009.

Men's 400m: Merritt Wins Over King James As Wariner Fades

World Champion Kirani James was disqualified for false starting but then was allowed to run the race under protest. He had the lead over Merritt heading into the homestretch, but Merritt got the win in 44.91 to James' 44.97. Jeremy Wariner ran 45.68 and Oscar P struggled again as well.

Kirani James' last outdoor 400m loss was at the World Youth Champs. He was undefeated for his outdoor collegiate and professional career until this one.

QT: Jeremy Wariner may not make the Olympic team. He regressed big time in this race.

In our mind, this race officially erased any fears people had about Kirani James after his 6th place showing at world indoors. He's run sub 45 2-straight times. He and Merritt are very evenly matched. At world's last year, only .03 separated them - today it was .06. There battle should be a great duel to watch in London.
