This is one of the darkest days in history for US distance fans. We emailed USATF to make sure they would be honoring the IAAF world rankings so those top 3 at the Olympic Trials could go to the Olympics - they told us they would not. That means Olympic silver medallist Paul Chelimo wouldn’t have made the 2016 team, nor would Jared Ward and three other Olympic finalists including Bernard Lagat who won the most thrilling race was the Trials. Some US Olympic Trials races may now be totally meaningless.
Carson came close again after only missing by .05 last week. Nick Willis was on rabbit duty again with Nate Brannen, Lee Emanuel and Will Leer all in the field. Bishop's race was a solid solo PB.
