Ezekiel Kemboi Cements Status As Greatest of All-Time; Evan Jager's Medal Hopes Come Up Short

There were doubts surrounding Kemboi's fitness this year, but once Worlds came around, he did what he always does, blowing away the field over the final 200 to win in 8:11.28. Conseslus Kipruto managed second despite tearing his shoe on the final water jump, while Brimin Kipruto (3rd) and Jairus Birech (4th) helped produced an unprecedented 1-4 sweep for Kenya. Dan Huling (5th) was the top American as Evan Jager (6th) and Donn Cabral (10th) struggled.

Don't Have The 2015 IAAF World Championships Standard? Don't Worry About It -- You Can Still Go to Worlds (Particularly If You Are American)

If you are an American fan dreaming of Beijing (or one of his fans) but don't have the standard, don't worry about it. For example, research by LetsRun.com shows men running as slow as 3:39 and women as slow as 4:12 for 1500 would right now make it into Worlds as the IAAF is going to fill the fields up to 48 for the 800 and 45 for the 1500 and steeples.
