As good as Kiprop is, he's not as good as Morceli, Cram, and others. It's just a different era. Faster targets for the runners, better facilities, but no guarantee that all of the runners are better.

Kiprop collapsed. Not easing up. Just not in 3:44 shape.
Since when was Morocco in the middle east?

The only meets that seem to have any atmosphere are those in the middle east...Rabat had people going crazy when Iguider won his race.
Time bonuses would probably be something meet directors would not agree to because it would make it impossible for them to budget for that event. If they gave a $5k bonus for every runner to break 13 min., their extra expense might be 0, 5k, or even 50k if 10 runners broke 13 min. If they pay according to place that's predictable and consistent.

well i think they should do some sort of nike clause at races, you run slow and cowardice you dont get paid
it should for 1500m and up, you must hit such and such paces or you wont get paid.....i mean another way to look at being slow coward "comfort" zone lame ass tactical races is rigged boxing.....they dance around and hug each other for 10 rounds then finally start boxing, its lame

no there not. ...
This was by far Kipyegon's worst mile/1500 race this season. I wouldn't count her out based on this.
Disappointing mile races! Both leaders faded quite badly.
I don't think Kiprop was going easy-- he looked cooked.
Kipyegon cannot beat Genzebe. I think this race shows that.
Laura Muir - Can i buy you a drink. What guts. She just went out iin what 62 and 207 in a mile and tried to run with Kipyegon.
My goodness. THey faded on the last lap but she made Kipyegon look vulnerable. That race should give Jenny Simpson and Rowbury some hope that Kipyegon can be beat.
