Especially egregious was the Mt SAC women's 5K finish. Overall great work and commentary though. Ryan's reaction to Lomong's antics was priceless.

The coverage was awesome for the distance events.
I especially liked the split screens at times, for example showing Sally Kipyego running by herself, and the 2nd screen showing the group behind her. That was great! The video during the races was excellent.
However the last laps and finish coverage really sucked. Why do such a great job with the bulk of the races, then screw up the finishes?????
What happened is the camera would zoom down on the leader/s in the last 1/2 lap, and not show anymore of the rest of the races anymore! The video would zoom in more tightly on the leader/s until finally only showing the finish line! What the camera should do is show all of the rest of the runners coming down the stretch! Either show all of the stretch, or alternate with showing all the stretch, last 1/2 lap, and last 1/2 of the straight - but don't ever show only the finish line! Good grief does this even have to be mentioned?? It is crazy, and this has happened before.
Overall, excellent coverage of the 5 and 10,000's, except for the finishes. I enjoyed the post race interviews too.
