Brenda Martinez talked to Treniere Moser pre-race about helping to make it fast, but Moser was treating it as a workout, doubling back from the 800.
True ran 13:06 to seal the deal for worlds with Jenkins right behind him in a huge PR. Abbey D’Agostino PRd at 5000 as did Johnson to punch her ticket to worlds in the 1500.

These are going to be two must-watch finals. Will Ben Blankenship's amazing 2015 continue or will he go home devasted thanks to Robby Andrews or Kyle Merber? The battle for women's spots #3 and #4 (thank you Ms. Simpson) will be incredibly intense on the women's side.
Donohue, a 2008 Olympian who has barely ran for the last 4-years, got the upset victory.
Cain wasn't too talkative (on that subject), but Moser says it "sucks". The US's first ever DL 5000 winner Ben True shares his thoughts.
The final two sections of the men's 1500 and the men's and women's 5,000s were all cancelled due to a thunderstorm, which meant no races for Robby Andrews, Galen Rupp or Kara Goucher. Manzano won a slow 1500 in 3:38.96 over Wheating (3:39.56), while Rowbury (1500) and Symmonds (800) both had runners go down directly in front of them, messing up their races.
