It was a strange system where finishes in the XC race determined the medalists from the distance track events (1500, 3000m and 2000m steeple), but it meant that XC was at an "Olympic" event for the first time in 94-years. Meanwhile, back on the track, Tasew Yada won the 800 in 1:50.38 and Luke Davids (10.15) and Rosemary Chukwuma (11.17) took wind-aided 100m titles.
It was all about the field events as records went down in the men's PV (Dmitriy Kachoanov - 5.20m), women's TJ (Aleksandra Nacheva - 13.11m), men's TJ (Jordan Diaz - 17.14m) and women's javelin (Elina Tzengo - 63.34m).
The CAS verdict is expected on or before March 26th. This may cause hyperandrogenous athletes to gamble on the case since the IAAF rules (if enforced by CAS) requires them to reduce their testosterone levels for 6-months before racing internationally.

A couple things that impressed Fox was the camaraderie in Kipchoge's training group and how flexible they were about training. They had a plan, but it they weren't "anal about sticking to it" if changes needed to be made.
Fox: “They were always ready to adjust. They did have a plan, a weekly structure. But it never bothered them if they had to make changes. Most elite runners have a very structured program and they’re anal about sticking to it. The program is all, discipline the thing. Kenyans’ attitude to training is incredibly flexible.”
