Watched a vid of the women's 3000 finish via the IAAF Twitter.

Tanaka DESTROYED the Ethiopians in the final stretch. Just a complete and utter cucking. Reminiscent of Yuki in Boston. Just pure Japanese dominance. Looked relaxed too. SO relaxed. Unf.
Wada had a solid performance as well. Drop the age-cheats out and you're looking at a Japanese 1-2.
I think Tanaka will challenge Muir's clean 1500 WR in the future (well, Houlihan may get there first). The girl's got wheels.
Nozomi Tanaka = fast, beautiful, CLEAN.
Born in 1999.
Already a legend.
