No, this site does not seem to care about the most important, exciting event of the year so far.
Lots of world leads, yet not a peep from here.
Greco 17.70, Shubenkov 7.49, Vicaut 6.48, Menkov 8.31, Lavillenie 6.01 and more
Vicaut ran 6.48? Damn he's improving fast. I'd love to see a 9.90 in the summer.
I like them both. Just weird that Euro indoors wasn't mentioned especially since Ciarin ran so well after his subpar 2012. That was depressing for me. I've also been bummed about Leer's 2012. I hope this indicates they are both on a good path to success. Yeah, running!
your benevolent dictator
Rhetorical question, do you not care about Ibrahmov and Higuero - or are we only supposed to hype up native English speakers?
1 Hayle Ibrahimov AZE 18 Jan 90 7:49.74
note: position 9 on the 2013 world list (indoor).
2 Juan Carlos Higuero ESP 3 Aug 78 7:50.26
note: position 32 on the 2013 world list (indoor).
3 Ciarán Ó Lionáird IRL 11 Apr 88 7:50.40 PB
We try to cover the whole sport but the emphasis is on the US runners. We all have our biases obviously - as you clearly do as you didn't mention Ibrahimov or Higuero.
We have something up now about O'Lionaird's bronze now. It simply slipped through the cracks. We did a full check of the European links around 1 pm ET yesterday and only did a quick spot update later.
PS. We swear it had nothing to do with him slamming us on twitter as the 'gutter press' a year ago on twitter. But as a result, he won't be too upset over the lack of press:
