Cam just ran 8:13, Derrick just ran 13:11

Pretty even match

I'ld say this is an even match, but if Derrick does not try and go out with lead pack and Levins does this could bring out a really interesting result

while i think it will be close, 8:13 is a better performance than 13:11, but not by a whole lot.

According to Purdy, 8:13.00 = 13:11.11, so I don't know what metric you're "using" to come to your conclusions.

(What I do know is that the 2 mile isn't run very often; you probably are just more impressed than you should be by 8:13 because there aren't enough races at the distance to relate the performances to the 5k distance.)

I used the IAAF for this year, and I didn't say I was more impressed, I just said it was a better performance. Based on Purdy, my assumption that it is not that much better (or at all) was justified.

Also, you can easily compare the 3,000m and the 2 mile, so there are plenty of those to compare to 5k's. The IAAF table also says 7:30 is about the same as 12:52 for 5k for Galen Rupp. I know its not exact but its not far-fetched.

Levins. He'll go out hard. Derrick will move up but not bridge the gap.

So that means Jager and Bumbalough should've been with Derrick during that 5k. I wonder what was up with them. Probably just not recovered from the 2 mile.

They'd run 3:56 and 8:13/14 the previous two weeks and the pace was hot. They are clearly at 13:11 level, they just didn't have it. Bumbi has been better than Derrick at the 5000 but I wonder if Derrick is moving ahead. I personally think it was an off day and Bumbi will be low 13:0x this summer and with more bang at the end to beat Derrick, but Derrick should do huge things this summer in the 10000

If it comes to a kick, my money's on the Canadian guy.

When has Levins ever gone out hard? He will sit and kick as usual. Top 15.

Looking at the IAAF scoring tables : 8:13.02 2 miles is equivalent to 13:04.95 for 1192 points. A 13:11.02 5000 is worth 1170 points and equal to 8:16.84 for 2 miles. This is for outdoors.
