|Subject: ||RE: Melbourne Track Classic 5000m: Lagat, St. Lawrence, Solinsky|
I was there. Must admit I was focusing on Lagat/StL/Solinksy in the last 200m, but at the finish it didn't look like Teg was cruising. They had a bit of a headwind coming round the last bend and in the home straight, so not a great place to finish hard if you're out on your own.
Solinsky ran a great race, because he sacrificed his own race to push the pace 1k out, to make sure they got the A-qual. Much respect.
Lagat - what a runner. He had two more gears left if he needed them. Stuck around and signed autographs for the kids, etc. Terrific guy.
Re StL, very interesting story. Great junior, left the sport at 21 to drink and party and get fat. Came back at 25 four years ago, and is now starting to see just how good he can be.
He's a 'young' 29, so expect him to improve for a couple more years yet.
oh, and Rudisha ran the easiest sub-1.44 I've ever seen live. Beautiful to watch.
