Interesting entries. For example, in the 5000 the European Youth Champion in 5000m, Sindre Buraas, is one of the participants.
Also, you got Jake and Zane Robertson in the 5000 and 1500meters. Will the wiggaz give us proof that training and living at altitude like the Kenyans is the way to the top?
Will Webb finally show that he is back in good old shape?
And what about Lalang, can he actually run a good 1500m? (For him that would be sub 3.40).
These are proving races. How is Webb's fitness? How about Teg? These questions will be answered this weekend.
Intrigued with Willis and Torrence in the 5000m.
The Robertson twins...I don't have high expectations. I feel they'd be better served training in the US rather than a spartan existence in East Africa.
Teg and Webb will indeed be interesting, probably nothing good from Webb but we can hope. The 5000m will be awesome. Sub 13.10?
The Robertson twins are just weird man, acting all gangster and living in sub-par conditions. If they wanted altitude they could've gone to Colorado.
It's tough to predict how Webb will perform these days, but I really think he's going to surprise some people this weekend. He started his year off last year with a double similar to what he ran 2 weeks ago, and went on to run 3:36. He will be under 3:40, the question will be how far under.
is Willis bumping up for olympics or just using this for training?
