2011 Paris Diamond League Preview: Alysia Montano Takes On Worlds Best, Shalane Flanagan After American Record, And Hot Men's 1,500

By LetsRun.com
July 7, 2011

Last year's formation of the Diamond League has created the perception that all Diamond League meets are equal on talent.

Nothing could be further from the truth. There is a reason the Areva Paris Meet used to be part of the Golden League - it is one of the best track meets in the world. This year is no different.

The Usain Bolt versus Christophe LeMaitre matchup at 200m is getting a lot of attention in the French papers (although we are pretty confident we know what will happen when guy with a 19.19 PR races a guy with a 20.16 PR). Dayron Robles and David Oliver square off in the 110 hurdles, a struggling Jeremy Wariner is in the 400, and much more (full start lists at the bottom of this article).

However, as usual, we want to focus on the distance races, particularly at this meet because it is absolutely stacked with a lot of American talent.

Quick Previews Below:

Men's 1,500m: Asbel Kiprop Takes On Lagat, Wheating, Manzano, Centrowitz And A Ton Of Stars, Including Amine Laalou

Olympic champion Asbel Kiprop has shown he's the best 1,500m runner on the planet when he brings his "A" game, like he did in Oslo this year. Often, however, like at the Prefontaine meet this year or Worlds in 2009, he races in the back with horrible tactics and gets beaten. And sometimes, Kiprop is just simply way, way off as he was last week when he was an embarrassing 9th place in Lausanne in the 800 in 1:49.72. That's pretty bad for someone with a 1:43.17 PR. LetsRun.com co-founder Robert Johnson just got back from Kenya (posts coming soon) and was in Kenya when that Lausanne race took place, and he asked some people how that performance was possible. The "gossipy response" in Iten was that Kiprop was basically someone without a plan, largely self-coached, who sometimes does stupid things. The unverified chatter was that he'd done something crazy like hill repeats two or three days before that 800.

Kiprop will need his "A" game for sure on Friday as he faces some of the world's best, including the Americans who went 1-2-3-4 at USAs - Matt Centrowitz (update: added to field on 7/7), Bernard Lagat, Leo Manzano and Andrew Wheating. If the "good Asbel" doesn't show up, there will be major question marks about him heading into next weekend's Kenyan Trials.

Matt Centrowitz, the US champ, has been added to the field and this will be his first European pro race. Andrew Wheating shocked everyone with his 3:30.90 in Monaco last year in his first pro European 1,500m. Wheating had run a 3:51 (3:34 equivalent 1,500) earlier in the year at Pre, however. Centro this year has not run under 3:40.00, so it will be really interesting to see what he does here. There is no doubt Centro is fit, but there is a huge difference between being in a 3:30 race and a 3:40 race, or a 3:35 race for that matter. Wheating has shown what is possible last year, but a lot of guys go to Europe and experience this type of race in Europe for the first time and get lost in the field. Having the Americans in the field will help him keep his bearings.

Lagat, the #2 man ever at 1,500m, is focusing on the 5,000m at Worlds but has shown he still has great speed. However, he got outkicked by Matthrew Centrowitz Jr at USAs, so we don't see how he can win here. Place very highly, yes.

Wheating and Manzano are not slowly getting their feet wet in Europe after their finishes at USAs, as they are taking on the world's best. Most important for both of them will be to get the World Championships "A" qualifier of 3:35.00. Manzano was the US #1 in 2010 but has struggled in 2011 and USAs was a huge step in the right direction for him. Heading into USAs, he'd finished 10th, 9th and 7th in his three 1,500/miles this year.

USAs was a huge disappointment for Wheating, as he only got on the US Worlds team because Lagat gave up his spot. Despite Wheating's finish at USAs, in a fast race, we see him and Lagat as having the best chances for the US in Paris. Prior to USAs, Wheating was running way better than Manzano (3:36 on the year versus 3:38). Plus one needs to remember that - amazingly - Wheating has a 1,500m PR faster than Asbel Kiprop's (3:30.90 to 3:31.20). As good as Kiprop can be, he has never thrived in all-out time trial races, which races like this can be.

The favorite may be 1:43/3:29 guy Amine Laalou from Morocco, who is focusing on the 1,500 this year. He soloed 3:31.92 the last time out, anchored a Penn Relays DMR victory, and looks like a real force at 1,500 this year. Others to watch are Mohammed Shaween of Saudi Arabia, who won over Mekonnen Gebremedhin of Ethiopia in Hengelo.

Olympic silver medallist Nick Willis is also in the race hoping to get the Olympic "A" standard and coming off a 3:40 win in Cork. And despite message board chatter, US champion Matt Centrowitz as of now is not in this race, although he is in Paris.

Our Thoughts:
Wheating's race here could determine which way the rest of his season goes. We'd love to see Kiprop win a fast race for once, but his last race (granted an 800) was awful and if he bombs here, it could send the rest of the summer off course.

Men's Steeplechase: Kemboi/Mekhissi-Benabbad Rematch Of The Ugly Display In 2009

This is defending World Champion and 2004 Olympic Champ Ezekiel Kemboi's race to lose. He comes into the race with the best seasonal best of anyone in the field thanks to his 8:08.34 win at Pre.

Having said that, he'll face Frenchman and Olympic silver medallist Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad, who defeated Kemboi  here in Paris in 2009. We love excessive celebrations, but in that victory, Mekhissi-Benabbad celebrated so much we said at the time he embarrassed himself (the first person to find us a good video of that finish we'll send $25 - here is a poor quality one). Mekhissi-Benabbad is making his steeple debut of 2011 before the home crowd and could be a factor. He is fit, as he has run 3:33 for 1,500m this year. They should battle for the win with Roba Gari of Ethiopia and Patrick Langat of Kenya in the hunt.

Women's 800m: Alysia Montano Takes On The World's Best As 4 Of The Top 5 In The World Battle

2011 US Champion Alysia (Johnson) Montano, formerly of Cal-Berkeley, was the world leader at 800m in 2011. Coming off her dominant USA win, she gets her first European test versus some of the world's best. Montano's win at USAs in 1:58.33 was the fifth fastest in the world so far in 2011 and only .21 off of Svetlana Usovich's world leader. Montano will face Usovich and 2 of the 3 other women faster than her this year in a stacked women's 800m.

Usovich, with the world leader, has lost twice in 2011. The other two women faster than Montano, Kenia Sinclair of Jamaica and Halima Hachlaf of Morocco have not lost.

And we haven't mentioned the World Champion Caster Semenya. Semenya used to dominate this event with ease, but now physically is not the same runner, as she likely has undergone hormone treatment to be allowed to compete against the women. Nonetheless, she has run 1:58.61 this year and could be a factor. But her last two races weren't good as on June 30th she ran 4:16 for 1,500 and on July 4th 2:01.02 for 800.

Our Thoughts: We wouldn't be surprised to see Montano pull this one off. If Sinclair can win here, she's figured out how to maintain her form later in the season as in recent years, her best performance seemingly came each year at Penn Relays.

Women's 5,000m: Shalane Flanagan & The American Record And Meseret Defar

Unless Tirunesh Dibaba is in the same race and healthy, as long as Meseret Defar is healthy and in a race, she is the favorite in our book. Defar is entered here and is healthy, although she only narrowly defeated fellow Ethiopians Setayehu Ejigu and Genzebe Dibaba in Oslo.

We expect it to be a 14:30 race with a sprint finish with Defar coming out on top.

The big question on the American front is what Shalane Flanagan does in this race. The former American record holder at 5,000m has been running great under new coach (since 2009) Jerry Schumacher on the roads (2nd in NYC Marathon) and cross-country (World Champs bronze medal). She has not yet returned to her old form on the track and this race in our minds is a huge test. Can she get the American record (14:44.76) that Molly Huddle took from her by .04 last year? If Flanagan wants to be anywhere near competitive in this race, she'll have to break the American record. When Huddle broke the American record in Brussels, she was only 10th in the race. Despite her accolades, Flanagan has not done a lot of European racing (this is her first 5,000m in Europe since 2007 we believe) and she may find that when she doesn't have to do all the work, the racing is easier.

US runner-up Amy Hastings is also in this race. Hastings needs to run under the 15:14 World Championships qualifying "A" standard so her teammate Angela Bizzarri can go to Worlds. The fact Hastings is in this race must indicate her team thinks she can go significantly faster, as there won't be a group running 15:14.00 pace. Can she get under 15:00? That likely would seem to be the plan since she is entered in this super competitive race.

Our Thoughts: In a fast race, if Flanagan doesn't break the American record, we feel safe in saying she won't medal at Worlds. As for Hastings, unless she gets in way over her head, the "A" standard shouldn't be a problem, as she opened her year with a 15:19 win and then ran 15:14.31 at USAs.

Other Action:
Any time Usain Bolt runs (and entertains the crowd before, during and after the race) is worth a watch in our book. The men's 200m is interesting as it's Bolt vs. himself and LeMaitre trying to break 20.00.

The best race should be the men's 110m hurldes where Dayron Robles faces David Oliver. The hurdles is the one event where the stars of the sport will race each other quite frequently.

The women's 100m features Veronica Campbell-Brown, the world leader in 2010 at 100 and 200, who does not race a lot of the big races in Europe. She's run 10.71 this year and takes on Kerron Stewart, who ran 10.87 at Pre.
