Women's 800: Mary Moraa is too good

The rabbit went out in a very honest 56.45 and World Champs bronze medallisat Mary Moraa and the 2nd fastest woman in the world Catriona Bisset went with her.

At 600 (1:28.26) they had a gap of 7 meters on 3rd placer Natoya Goule. Goule closed the gap on the turn, but on the homestretch it was all Moraa she pulled away for the win in 1:58.72, as Bisset held on for 2nd and Sage Hurta-Klecker of the US moved up for 3rd.

Fred Kerley Takes The 100m

Kerley wasn't dusted by anyone at the start and that meant it was his to lose and he doesn't do that anymore.

He gave a glance to his left before the finish and celebrated afterwards reminding everyone he is the top #1 100m in the world.

Jakob Ingebrigtsen show's he's the boss

Jakob showed why he is the best 1500m runner on the planet.

After an honest opening 400 (55.13) the pace lagged (1:55.13) and at the bell Ingebrigtsen (2:38.31) was stalked by Olli Hoare who was trailed by Yared Nuguse, but others were in contention with the modest pace.

It was textbook Jakob the final lap, as he controlled the pace. He still was trailed by Hoare and Nuguse on the final turn and then hit the afterburners opening up a gap on Hoare. He looked back over his should with roughly 50 meters to go and would look back over his shoulder 2 more times but this one was over at this point. Nuguse had the best final 50 of anyone to pass Hoare for 2nd but Jakob showed he is still the king of the 1500m and he put up a #1 at the finish to show it.

Gudat Tsegay Destroys Field

Gudaf Tsegay showed why she is one of the best long distance runners on the planet.

The pace lights were on world record pace and while this wasn’t a world-record attempt, Tsegay wasn’t far behind the lights early on. Birke Haylom of Ethiopia, the U20 world champ last year who only spotted a 4:01 personal best hung close, and at 800 in 2:06.63 they were ahread of the rabbit and the field.

At the bell Tesgay had 15 meters on Hailu and was just racing the clock. The final lap was actually Tsegay's slowest (63.59) but she still destroyed the field and got the win in a world leading 3:54.03, just off her pb of 3:54.01.  Haylom paid the price the final lap and was passed by Freweyni Hailu just before the line (3:57.65 to 3:57.66), but Haylom was rewarded with a huge PB.

Men’s 110 hurdles: Broadbell runs down Holloway

When Grant Holloway races the 110 hurdles, you know he is going to be leading at halfway. The question is always whether he can hold on over the last few hurdles. Today, the answer was no as 22-year-old Rasheed Broadbell took him down late to win in 13.08 – a quick time considering the 1.3 m/s headwind.

After being called out of their blocks twice due to excessive crowd noise and long holds by the starter, Holloway got out to his traditional rocket start and had a gap on the field by halfway. But his lead began shrinking after hurdle six, and though Holloway still led off the final hurdle, Broadbell was moving much faster and was able to create a little separation by the finish as Holloway ran 13.12 for 2nd.

Men’s 800: Wanyonyi holds off Kinyamal again

Two weeks ago in Nairobi, 18-year-old star Emmanuel Wanyonyi waged a terrific home straight duel with Kenyan countryman Wyclife Kinyamal to win in 1:43.32 to Kinyamal’s 1:43.66, the two fastest times in the world this year. Today the two men again went 1-2 and again Wanyonyi prevailed, only this time he did it by holding off Kinyamal after coming from behind in Nairobi.

Morocco’s Abdelati El Guesse, perhaps getting caught up in the atmosphere racing at home, got out hard and had a four-meter lead at the bell (50.9). Wanyonyi was second and that proved to be key as he was able to get the jump on Kinyamal, passing El Guesse early in the final turn. Kinyamal was able to get around by the end of the turn, but wound up bumping El Guesse, who was tying up mightily. The contact didn’t have much of an effect on Kinyamal but he could not close the gap to Wanyonyi in the final 100 and had to settle for 2nd.

Women’s 400 hurdles: Little takes it

We're underway with the track action.

Former world record holder Dalilah Muhammad took this one out quickly but faded big-time over the final 200 meters as the race turned into a home-straight duel between American Shamier Little and Jamaica’s Rushelle Clayton. Little had the lead entering the final 100 and was just able to hold off Clayton, 53.95 to 54.15. Muhammad, 33, could only manage 55.72 for 5th – her second-slowest time since 2015.
