Only a 57 last lap. Kind of disappointing

Terribly paced. With the new drug passport few have the strength to threaten the fast barriers aka 12:50 and 3:30. Manzano took advantage and had a good close in 3:33.1. Hopefully he will do even better at Monaco or London.

The 57 last lap from was from leader-to-leader. The pack was a good 2 seconds behind the rabbit at the bell, so more like a 55 last lap, I think.

What happened to Centro? DNF; I hope that it is not an injury. The team is now locked though - Centro, Lomong, and Leo.

What happened to all of the Americans? Manzano was the only one on the screen at the end, right?

250m to go Centro dropped out. This was literally the same as the Oslo mile where they went out fast and no one held the pace so it was won in 3:50, which is pretty much equivalent to what was run here.

Under WR pace through 800.

Manzano 3:33.14, 3rd place

Lomong in 10th place, Lagat even further behind, Centro packed it in.

Lagat is showing his age - that used to be a normal pace for him following El G.

Got to give props to Lawi Lalang who looks to be in great form running 3:33.2.

I disagree. This is the typical under distance effort by Lagat. He used to run equally as weak 800s during his 1500m peak days. It was probably just a rust buster or a workout.

Also consider that he closed in almost 3:36 at nationals. I'm sure Lagat still has a 3:32 still in him.

I don't know why people assume Lagat could still pull something so fast. His last 1600m was a 3:55 which corresponds to a 3:40 1500m. He only ran 3:34 last year. If he can run a 3:32 it would only happen off of pure 1500m training not his current regiment. I know a lot of people say because he beat Rupp who ran that 3:50 indoor mile then he should be able to close faster than him in a straight 1500m. However, I wouldn't be surprised if Rupp was basically only training for the 1500/3000m and couldn't actually run something that fast at the moment, kind of how like Geb ran 3:31 indoors but slower outdoors. That being said, Lagat was near the leaders at the first lap which was far too fast for him in 53.6 or so and that probably burned him out. This makes sense because Manzano and Lalang held back early and then caught back up with the leaders by the end.

I know the pacing sucked for a 1500m, but holy crap, did you guys see that first 100m? Did anybody time it?
