12th IAAF World Athletics Championships - Day Nine LRC Bekele Holds Off Lagat & Completes Historic Double To Stamp Himself As The Greatest of All Time Kenenisa Bekele and Bernard Lagat had a strech run for the ages but in the end Bekele had claimed a 10th global track crown.

12th IAAF World Athletics Championships - Day Nine LRC Tumult Mars Women's 1,500 As Rowbury Wins Bronze Natalia Rodriguez and Gelete Burka got tangled up with 200m to go, causing Burka to fall and Rodriguez (the winner) to be DQed for running inside the track. With that, Maryam Jamal retained her world title despite getting steamrolled by Rodriguez in the final 100, while Shannon Rowbury was moved from 4th to 3rd for America's first medal in the event since Regina Jacobs.

12th IAAF World Athletics Championships - Day Nine LRC Women's Marathon: Bai Xue Leads Chinese Red Army China's Bai Xue pulled away the final kilometer from Yoshimi Ozaki of Japan to get the world title, as China took 3 of the top 5. American Kara Goucher was in contention but finished 10th after throwing up her fluids from the second water stop on and fellow American DesireĆ© Davila was 11th.
*Yoshimi Battles The Robots And Wins Japanese Marathon Silver



12th IAAF World Athletics Championships - Day Nine LRC Malaudzi Completes South African Sweep Of 800m Races The wild men's 800m finished in style - with an unexpected winner in a tactical, physical race that saw defending champion Alfred Kirwa Yego come up just short of defending his title and American Nick Symmonds running 750m of perfection. Yusuf Saad Kamel grabbed his second medal, a bronze, to match his father Billy Konchellah's medal haul from Worlds back in the '90s.

Americans Finish Strongly
 *Brittney Reese (LJ) And 4 x 400m Win Gold On Final Day Usain Bolt was dominant, but the American 4 x 400m relays were perhaps just as far ahead of the rest of the world, as Jeremy Wariner and Allyson Felix ran ridiculously good second legs to put the race out of reach early. The US finished with 22 medals and the #1 spot with 10 golds ahead of Jamaica's 7. Reese jumped a world-leading 7.10 to win the long jump.

Women's 5k Final: LRC Kenyan 1-2 Sweep Caps Greatest World Champs For Kenyan Women On The Track  Just like in 2007, the last lap was in 58.6 and the winning time 14:57.9. This time, however, the winner was not Meseret Defar, but Vivian Cheruiyot, the 2007 runner-up. Defar let up right before the line for the second time in a week, giving the silver to Kenya's "Forgotten Lady" Sylvia Kibet. American Jen Rhines was 9th. The two medals gave the Kenyan women a record 6 medals on the track (they had 7 total ever combined prior to 2007).

Olympics Day 14 - Athletics  *Amazing Men's Pole Vault Aussie Steve Hooker Overcomes Injury To Clear 5.90m On First Attempt! At first when he was injured, Hooker gave himself no shot at even competing. Then he was 50-50. Then in the prelims, he took one jump to get to the final. He said he had no chance at winning. Then in the final, Hooker soared over 5.85 but hit it on the way down. His second jump won him the gold as he got 5.90 on his first attempt. He is an amazing competitor.

World Record (And $100k) For Polish Hammer Thrower As Germans Get Another Medal!!! The Germans have been incredible. They won 0 medals in Beijing and now have 9 in Berlin after their women's 4 x 100m dove for bronze. The new WR holder twisted her ankle celebrating and sat out 4 throws. Germans have won a medal in every throwing discipline and the fans are loving it.

*4 x 100m Finals: Bolt And Powell Blast Away From T&T To Give Jamaica Another Gold In 4 x 100m GBR got another medal in 3rd while Carribeans locked up gold and silver in both 4 x 100s. It was Bolt's first final without a WR since 2007, though their 37.31 is the 2nd-fastest ever run and a championships record. Despite the #2 performance of all-time, Steve Ovett was giving them advice on how to really run a fast time.

12th IAAF World Athletics Championships - Day Seven  "Underdog" US Sprint Teams Rally Back Before Men's 4x100 Gets Dairy Queened (thanks, Brits)- Allyson Felix got the US women their first home-grown sprint gold before J Wariner and L Merritt won silver and gold, respectively. Felix is the most elegant sprinter. We said earlier in the year that Merritt is the king of the 400, despite Wariner being the 2-time world champion (and some of you wrote in calling us idiots). Well, despite Wariner's efforts, he cannot beat Merritt. Video: Post-Race Press Conference With Wariner And Merritt

12th IAAF World Athletics Championships - Day Six 19.19!!! Bolt Does It!!!
"It will be a great thing for the Queen to dub me, 'Sir Usain Bolt.'" Maybe after you run sub-42 in 2012, Usain.
*Michael Johnson: "A ridiculous race. The bend is unbelievable. No one has ever run a bend like this and probably never will." Johnson awed crowds with record winning margins of 0.33. Bolt? In horse racing he won by 20 lengths, in human racing 0.61 seconds.
*Bolt Entered Stadium With T-Shirt Reading "Ich Bin Ein Berlino" Then he ran 19.19 and got a 20-minute standing ovation love-fest. If he needed another career he could be a PR specialist (PR = public relations).

He did no warmup and says he's going to just go for a medal in the final. Watch his post-jump interview here, where he says he can't beat the young Frenchman Lavillenie (left).

LRC Caster Semenya Dominates Women's 800, But Is She "Entirely Female"? For the 2nd straight year, an 18-year-old African dominated the women's 800, but this year the winner is garnering worldwide headlines as people wonder, "Is she entirely female?" Behind Semenya, there was a great 3-way battle for the final two medals. *Semenya's Mom: "She is my little girl.

Wednesday AM: LRC 5k Heats: Favorites And Jen Rhines Advance,  Abeylegesse Doesn't Start The Women's 5k feats were a nearly complete waste of time as only 7 women were eliminated and Meseret Defar felt the need to sprint all the way to the finish. American Jen Rhines advanced. Interview with her and American Julie Culley. In other action, the decathlon got underway and Dayron Robles nearly blew it. He  started real slow and was only 3rd, the last automatic qualifier in his heat in the hurdles.

12th IAAF World Athletics Championships - Day Three LRC Men's 10k:
A Day After Bolt's Electric 100m Run, Bekele Reminds Us He's Even More Dominant Than Bolt Kenenisa Bekele remained undefeated at the 10,000 meter distance for his life as he won in a championship record 26:45 thanks to a 13:05 2nd 5k. Eritrean Zersenay Tadese got a well-deserved silver after he put on a spirited front-running effort that would have broken anyone on the planet but Bekele. American Dathan Ritzenhein ran the race of his pro career to move up to 6th in 27:22 as Galen Rupp faded to 8th and had to be helped from the track.

Women's Steeple Final - Barringer Just Misses Medals Spain's Marta Dominguez got the win while Jenny Barringer's 9:12 American record was short of the medals in a come-from-behind bid.

LRC Men's 1,500 and Women's 800 Semis Recap It was polar opposites for the Americans as three made the 1,500 final and none made the 800 final. Pamela Jelimo dropped out while Leo Manzano almost outkicked Asbel Kiprop. We're recapping the event as we speak ...
