She ran 12.52 as US's Tenaya Jones took silver in 12.84. Other US medals included Cory Leslie's bronze in the steeplechase and Aron Rono's silver in the 10,000. The winners in those events were Canadians and former NCAA athletes Matt Hughes (steeple) and Mo Ahmed (10,000).
Women's field has Morgan Uceny, Erin Donohue and Emily Lipari. Men's lead by Cory Leslie, Craig Forys, Ford Palmer.
Emma Coburn and Evan Jager should win but the steeple is suddenly a very interesting event in the US. Stephanie Garcia, Ashley Higginson, Colleen Quigley, Courtney Frerichs, and Leah O'Connor all have realistic dreams of competing in Beijing as do Stanley Kebenei, Dan Huling, Donn Cabral and Cory Leslie.
Merber's previous best was the 3:35.59 he ran at the Swarthmore Last Chance meet in 2012. It was a huge PR for Garcia who had only ran 4:13.33 for 1500 previously. Cory Leslie (3:35.36) and Stephanie Brown (4:07.55) were the runner-ups.
Zane Robertson and Ryan Hall are way more similar than you thought, Alberto Salazar is track's Bill Belichick, Will Claye is not Canadian but good for the sport, the Russian are really good at doping, plus the tweet of the week, fast races on a flat track and more.
Leslie talks about his most memorable mile, who would be on his "mile fantasy team" and how he always has a Snickers bar the night before a race.
