Lagat looked great.
U.S. distance runners (except for possibly Solinsky and Wurth-Thomas)
that was a total setup. his teammate false starts first so that he's guaranteed to get DQ'd. hides the fact that he's probably hurt worse than he wants people to know. plus, doesnt' look bad if he loses.
men's high hurdles.......pay to bring him there, and he dq's (perhaps on purpose) nice!
Yeah, you're right. 26 mids 10K; 14 mids women's 5K; Mutola's 16th straight 800m win after HSer Price leads for 600m; Lagat outkicking Ramzi et al in 2-mile; Walker's AR in the PV; yadda, yadda, yadda.
I thought most of the meet was unimpressive.
How is that bad for a season opener?

Are you kidding? Mottram's the one who bunched up the field after the rabbit dropped. He didn't look comfortable from the beginning, had a bad race, and got worked. Don't make him out to be some altruistic, sacrificial hero. He had a bad race, plain and simple. He doesn't need you to make excuses for him.

I was disappointed with the 2-mile. The rabbit (Bak) messed up so Mottram does what he can to make a show out of and the rest of the field walks all over him for it. I respect Mottram for that, otherwise the race would have went through 4:20 at the mile.
