A Fan's Guide To Herculis Monaco Samsung Diamond League London Track & Field Meet

US 800 Medal Hopefuls Nick Symmonds And Alysia Montano Look For Wins In 800s; Evan Jager Looks For American Record In Men's Steeple?

By LetsRun.com
July 19, 2012

The last Diamond League track and field meet before the Olympics takes place on Friday in Monaco and it should be a great meet, as a whole lot of stars want to get in one last good effort before the Games. The 2012 Herculis Monaco meet is the 9th of the 14 Samsung Diamond League events on the year.

Mid-d and distance-wise, the meet features a world record attempt and in our minds a US record attempt by Evan Jager in the men's steeple and a great men's 1,500 with Kiprop, Chepseba, Centrowitz, Willis and others. In the 800, US champs Nick Symmonds and Alysia Montano are possible winners. As for the rest of the action, there is a great men's 400, women's pole vault, men's high jump and a whole lot more, including the return of Jeneba Tarmoh.

We preview the mid-d and distance action (in the order of their importance/excitement) and then take you through the other running events and then field events (in the order that they occur).

You can see the start times and entries of the actual events below. All times have been changed to ET in case you are planning on watching or following it live. The meet will be broadcast live in the US on Universalsports.com for $4.99 ($24.99 for all DL events) starting at 2 pm ET. It likely will be on free in Canada at 2pm as well.

Men's Steeple: Paul Kipsiele Koech Goes For The World Record - Evan Jager Goes For The American Record?


Let's Go People -
Clap Your Hands
And Help Me Get The AR

Ever since Evan Jager took to the steeple like a fish takes to water, minus the one hiccup at USATF High Performance meet, US distance fans have been salivating for a race like this.

Jager, who is clearly the most exciting US prospect the steeple has had in at least a decade and arguably forever, will finally face a stacked international field for the first time on Friday in Monaco. In Monaco, he'll face four of six fastest men in 2012, including the top two in Paul Kipsiele Koech (7:54.31) and Richard Mateelong (7:56.81). Also in the field is Jairus Birech (#5 - 8:03.43) and Conselus Kipruto (#6 - 8:06.10).

The race is being hyped as a potential world record attempt for Kipsiele Koech. He certainly might as well try because he never does well at altitude and regularly under-performs at the Kenyan Trials and thus won't be going to the Olympics. As Koech himself recently said, "My goal now is to win all my races and try to break the world record, maybe in Monaco. This is my Olympics, the European circuit."

QT #1: Is American record talk crazy for Jager in this race? Even though his PR is 8:17.40 and the American record is 8:08.82, we don't think it is.

Take a look at the top 5 Americans all-time in the steeplechase and look at their 5,000 PRs according to tilastapaja.org:

1. Dan Lincoln 8:08.82 - 13:32.27
2. Henry Marsh 8:09.17 - 13:45.20
3. Mark Croghan 8:09.76 - 13:44.22
4. Brain Diemer 8:13.16 - 13:47.15
5. Dan Huling 8:13.29 - 13:24.72

Okay, Huling's PR is fairly legit and some of those other guys may have run a bit faster, but our point is they were nowhere near as good of flat runners as Jager, who ran 13:22.18 in 2009 as a 20-year-old and is likely in sub-13:10 shape right now.

QT #2: As much as we hyped the Kenyan opposition that Jager is facing, it's worth pointing out that none of them are on the Kenyan Olympic team as they finished 4-7 at the Kenyan Trials.

6   Conseslus Kipruto   KEN 8 Dec 94    8:34.19
7   Paul Kipsiele Koech KEN 10 Nov 81   8:36.20

QT #3: Anyone remember last year's Monaco meet? Brimin Kipruto was spectacular in the steeple and missed the world record by .01. *Re-live 2011 Herculis Monaco Here.

QT #4: Will there be any fans wearing the following shirt supporting Jager like they were at the US Trials? We hope so.

Men's 1,500: Asbel Kiprop, Matt Centrowitz, Nick Willis And Others Get Ready For London


The Scene After Last Year's 1,500 - More Photos Here
*2011 Monaco Recap

The men's 1,500 is full of twos:

    Two of last year's World Championships 1,500 medallists will race in Asbel Kiprop (gold) and Matt Centrowitz (bronze).

    Two of the 2008 Olympic 1,500 medallists will race in Kiprop (gold) and Nick Willis (silver).

    Two 2012 Kenyan Olympic 1,500 runners and two of the top three in the world in terms of time for 2012 will race in Kiprop (#2 in 2012) and Nixon Chepseba (#3 in 2012).

    Two 2012 US 1,500-meter Olympians will race in Leo Manzano (Trials champion) and Matt Centrowitz (US runner-up).

Additionally, US 5th placer Robby Andrews will run in the first Diamond League 1,500 of his career. The race also includes Morocco's Amine Laalou. Laalou, the former 800 ace who eight times in his career has run in the 1:43s, is racing the 1,500 for the first time outdoors this year after running 3:52.12 for the mile at Pre and 3:50.43 at Oslo.

QT #1: This race is Kiprop's first race since his surprising third-place finish at the Kenyan Trials on June 23rd and presumably his last race before the Olympics. We'll be paying close attention to how he looks prior to his Olympic title defense.

QT #2: Last week's run in London was a disaster for the US champ Leo Manzano, who was dead last in the mile in 4:00. It wasn't a whole lot better for Matt Centrowitz, who was last in the 800 in 1:48.42, but we don't really care what Centrowitz does in an 800 as his PR is only 1:47.77. If Centrowitz (or Manzano - but we aren't counting on Leo as he's never come close to medalling) is going to somehow steal a medal at the Olympics, he needs to look better here.

QT #3: We'll also be paying close attention to Nick Willis in his first DL 1,500 of the year. In 2008, his last race before Beijing was in Monaco and he did well - 3:33.51 for third - in a race won in 3:31.49. Of course last year, he was even better as he ran a national record of 3:31.79 before bombing at worlds.

QT #4: James Magut, who was 6th in the Kenyan Trials, won the 1,500 in Lignano on Tuesday over Will Leer and David Torrence. It's a shame that Leer can't get himself into a race of this stature, since he is someone that deserves to have the "A"' going into next year.

QT #5: Guys running the race that are reading this, can we keep it clean this year and make sure no punches are thrown.

Women's 800: Alysia Montano Takes On Caster Semenya

2009 world champ and 2011 silver medallist Caster Semenya has said she her goals are simple - to win Olympic gold and set the world record in the process. Well, considering her seasonal best is just 1:59.18 and the world record is 1:53.28, it's time for her to start moving towards the 1:56 range, as so far this year, she's looked like someone who should be happy if they make the final at the Olympics.

In terms of 2012 performances, US Olympic Trials champ Alysia Montano is the favorite here. Montano ran 1:57.37 back on June 1st at Pre in her seasonal opener.

Russia's Yelena Kofanova, who ran 1:57.77 in the Trials of the Russian Champs before finishing 4th in the final, is also in the field, as is 31-year-old Yuliya Krevsun of the Ukraine. Krevsun was 4th at the 2009 Worlds.

2012 US Olympic Trials third placer Alice Schdmidt is in the field, as is the woman who Schmidt edged for the final Olympic spot - Molly Beckwith. Beckwith got a much-deserved victory in London last week.

QT #1: We're sure Semenya defenders will tell us that Semenya has won 5 of her 7 800s this year. That is true, but in the two she lost, she didn't break 2:00 and was trounced by more than two full seconds. Yes, those losses were both in late May, but Semenya ran last Sunday in Germany and the results were far from impressive as she beat 38-year-old Diane Cummins by just .01.

1   Caster Semenya  RSA 7 Jan 91    2:01.20
2   Diane Cummins   CAN 19 Jan 74   2:01.21
3   Rosibel García  COL 13 Feb 81   2:01.27  SB
4   Lydia Wafula    KEN 15 Feb 88   2:01.35

QT #2: This is only the third 800 of the year for Montano. She ran at Pre, at the Trials and here. Normally 800 runners need more sharpening than that.

QT #3: Two-time 1,500 world champ Maryam Jamal is also in this race. If she looks good here, maybe she's on her way back to her old form, as she did get the win in the 1,500 in London.

Men's 800: Nick Symmonds Returns To The Diamond League As Abubaker Kaki Tries To Return To Form?

This race should give us an insight into who is likely to contend for the silver and bronze medals at the Olympics assuming David Rudisha comes through for gold as the favorite.

American medal hopeful Nick Symmonds, after not getting an invite to the London Diamond League 800, will return to the Diamond League action in a battle with 2011 silver medallist Abubaker Kaki. Prior to London, Kaki was the presumed silver medal favorite, but he looked horrible in London, where he was just 5th in 1:46.05.

Also in the field is 2011 4th placer at Worlds, Marcin Lewandowki. Lewandowski, a 25-year-old Pole, hasn't raced since early June.

The field also includes the British champ Andrew Osiage, who had the lead at the 700-meter mark last week in London, and a few teenage stars from Kenya in 17-year-old Leonard Kosencha and 19-year-old Abraham Rotich.

Kosencha defeated Mo Aman last year at World Youths and Aman is the only guy who beat Rudisha last year. This year, Kosencha ran a Kenyan junior national record of 1:43.60 on May 27 in Morocco before getting sick at the Kenyan Trials and faltering. Kosencha recently lost his Kenya junior record to Rotich, who ran 1:43.15 in Heusden on July 7th. Rotich was 4th at the Kenyan Trials.

QT #1: We talked an awful lot about Kenyan teenagers but here's the weird thing - neither Rotich or Kosencha went to World Juniors last week (and neither is going to the Olympics). There the Kenyans were represented by 17-year-old Timothy Kitum (1:43.94 PR), who was the Kenyan Olympic Trials runner-up, and 17-year-old Edwin Melly (1:44.79 PR). So by our count, Kenya has at least four teens who have run under 1:45, including two 17-year-olds who have run in the 1:43s.

QT #2  How will the Kenyan teens do? They might even win, but we'll be watching this race to see how the 2012 Olympic medal hopefuls do - Kaki, Symmonds, Lewandowski, Osiage. If Kaki is off again, Symmonds on paper has a great chance to contend for the win.

QT #3: 2012 US Olympian Duane Solomon is also in the field.

Women's Flat 3,000: Three US Olympians Race

US Olympic Trials 5,000 champion Julie Culley will step down in distance and US 1,500 Olympians Shannon Rowbury and Jenny Simpson, as well as fellow American 1,500 runner Gabrielle Anderson, who just got the "A" standard in the 1,500 for next year on Tuesday by running 4:04.74, will step up in distance in the women's 3,000.

We doubt any of the Americans will be able to contend with the 4th and 5th placers from the Kenyan Trials in Sylvia Kibet and Mercy Cherono, who are the favorites here on paper. Kibet after all won World Championships 5,000 silver in 2009 and 2011.

The question we have is if any of the Americans can beat 17-year-old Buze Diriba, the Ethiopian who won the World Junior 5,000 last week. We think the answer is probably no even though Diriba's PR is 15:11.

QT #1: What's a good 3,000 time? Well, a 15:00 is equal to roughly 8:38 for 3,000.

QT #2: We think it's a good thing that Rowbury and Uceny are working on their endurance. LetsRun.com's #1 training mantra is strength = speed.

Any Chance This Year's Meet Can Equal Last Year's?

Before we get to the other events, we're going to encourage you to re-experience last year's meet as it was an incredible meet. From Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad actual punch to Chris Solinsky's phantom punch (see below) to a near world record in the steeple, to Nick Willis' PR and New Zealand national record in the 1,500 to Galen Rupp and Chris Solinsky's DNF in 5000, the meet seemingly had it all. *Re-live 2011 Herculis Monaco Here.

Men's 400: Olympic Champ LaShawn Merritt Takes On King James & The World Junior Champ

The men's 400 should be a real treat as the top three from last year's Worlds will all race, as will a new upstart and a former Olympic champ.

World leader and 2008 Olympic champ LaShawn Merritt (who won silver last year) is here as is last year's world champ Kirani James and last year's bronze winner in former FSU runner Kevin Borlée. Kevin's twin Jonathan, who was better at FSU and won the NCAA title in 2009, is also racing, as is the world #2 in 18-year-old sensation Luguelin Santos of the Dominican Republic. Santos won World Juniors last week.

2004 Olympic champ Jeremy Wariner is also in the field but seems to be on the way out.

Women's Pole Vault: Murer Vs. Isinbayeva

This one will be a treat for pole vault fans, as 2011 world champ Fabiana Murer will clash with 2004 and 2008 Olympic champ Yelena Isinbayeva. Svetlana Feofanova, who has medalled more than 10 times indoors and out, also is in the field.

QT #1: Murer has tried to put the pressure on Isinbayeva by saying Isinbayeva is the Olympic favorite, but Murer has the #2 mark in the world. If she wins here, it's hard to say Murer isn't the favorite.

QT #2: The person with the #1 mark in the world this year is American Jenn Suhr, who went 4.81 at some meet we've never heard of in Champaign, IL on July 7th. Would it be too much for her to compete in a meet like this?
