2008 ExxonMobil Oslo Bislet Games Results
by: LetsRun.com
June 6, 2008

If you thought the 2008 ExxonMobil Oslo Bislet Games might be a bit watered down being the same weekend as the Prefontaine Classic, think again.

The meet on Friday was simply amazing. First up was Tirunesh Dibaba. In the warm weather (78-80 degrees), she put on a show, smashing the world record at 5000m, thanks to an incredible final 2k when she was out pushing on her own. Her splits:

2:48
2:55 (5:43)
2:55 8:38
2:49 11:28
2:42.7
(she needed to average 2:51.3 to break the old record. She ran 4:06/4:07 the last 1500)

Then Abubaker Kaki put on a show in the men's 800. It was the first matchup of the two teen sensations Kaki and David Rudisha. Kaki led after the rabbit dropped out and Rudisha was on his tail entering the final straight. Just when you figured leading must be tiring him out, Kaki blasted away down the home stretch to a commanding victory and world junior record (1:42.69). It was the first sub 1:43 in 5 years. Rudisha ran a pr (1:43.72), but it was not enough as he suffered his first loss in 12 races.

Britain's Andrew Baddeley got a surprise win in the mile, World record holder Samitova-Galkina ran 9:14 in the steeple. The performances by Dibaba and also Kaki were so stunning that Pamela Jelimo's 1:55:41 almost was forgotten (it's expected now she'll run 1:55 every time ou she's so damn good).

Jeremy Wariner ran 43.98, his first sub 44 clocking before nationals.
