2008 adidas Track Classic *Results
LRC Shannon Rowbury 4:01.61!!!!, Jenn Stuczynski 16' American Record
Tyson Gay Gets Double, Wariner Wins 400, Lagat Wins 1500
Rowbury's run and her rise the last few weeks has been incredible (4:12 to 4:01). Stuczynski improved her outdoor American record and took a good shot at the world record. Tyson Gay looked untouchable in the 200, but beatable in the 100. Jeremy Wariner won by .29 seconds, but that was closer than normal. Allyson Felix was only 4th in the 100. Lagat won the rough and tumble 1500 and Galen Rupp got the surprise win in the 3k. We give you the LetsRun.com analysis.

Saturday's Action: Ali Abdosh, Dejen Gebremeskel Run 13:08 4 people finished the race and 3 guys broke 13:10. Pretty sick for a US distance race. They came up short of the 13:04 US All-Comers record but we hear it was windy. Abdosh just got the bronze at the African champs. Brandon Shaw won the 800. The main events are today.
