derrick ran a really smart race, Rae on the other hand showed a ridiculous kick moving from 9th to 2nd in the last 200m. probably closed in a 54 or so, wouldn't be too surprised to see him make the Canadian olympic team if he can hit the standard
I'm here at the race and with about 100m to go Derrick snuck up on the inside of Lalang and threw a couple elbows at him so he could get to the inside of lane 1 even though he had barely any room to work with. Derrick ended up capitalizing on this and gapped Lalang relatively quickly. It should be interesting to see what happens later in the 5K with these two guys.
Teg was sitting near last place the whole race until about 500 or 600 to go. He moved up a lot and got into better position (~5th) with a lap to go, and turned it on at the end, and looked strong. Would have placed better with some better tactics
For your viewing pleasure.

Not at all. I'm a huge Derrick fan too, btw.
|terrible program in oklahoma|
Wasn't Vail the primary proof that Smith could coach someone to improvement. Getting Vail to a 4:11 mile and 13:59 5k or whatever he ran there before leaving doesn't look so good.
However this does give Fernandez more hope for when he finally gets away from there and starts doing his own training again.
Yeah, remember that was Rupp's 5th year, not his true senior season like it is for Derrick.
Rupp only had a track season of his first year due to entering college late, so pretty much his 5th year was his true senior. Anyway Rupp made it to Worlds and the Olympics while in college, at the top of his distances for the entire nation not just college, not even including his 5th year. Rupp so much > than Derrick, not even worth comparing.
|not a card|
Derrick has run faster at a younger age than Rupp (took 8 seconds off Rupp's 5K AJR) and has now run 13:19 indoor in his 4th year v. Rupp's 13:18 in his 5th year.
Will Derrick make multiple WC/Olympic teams and run faster than 13:06 and 26:48? THAT has yet to be seen.
You obviously don't realize that Dave Smith is still Ryan Vail's coach. But nice try, really.
