We can disagree about Fisher having a shot at the team (for the record I never said he would make it, just that he could), but there’s zero chance he beats Teare regardless of how that final played out.
Oh my. Looks like Lyles took Erriyon’s money by 0.02 seconds. 19.67 and 19.69
Seriously. It's like this place is run by children who learned a new word and want to be in the cool crowd.
You're doing a stupid workout. Cut your recovery to a short walk and less than 1 minute recovery so you start the next lap every 2 minutes.
Fisher could possibly be world level in the 1500, but also grouping in the 800m is absolutely ridiculous. Yes, he has good foot speed and good form, but he lacks the power to run a world-level 800 or to close a race at a world level pace in a tactical 1500m...Just think back to college when he would get his doors blown off by McDonald or when Kincaid would definitively outkick him. Fisher running the 800m would look like what Jakob does, just less impressive....

Yeah, it's like people just look at stats here and don't even run. Meanwhile I'm struggling to run within 30 seconds of my tempo pace in 90 degree heat. Very Impressive Grant. that 12:53 was obviously no fluke as he has proved over and over. Obviously, time is not the goal right now, but he could definitely dip under 12:50 in good conditions.
very soft of coop to dodge grant
No, we should separate running and sprinting tho.
Sprinting is going fast and quitting fast.
Running is going fast and persisting.
Women are good, they may not be as fast but they bring the positive energy and hard work.
If you watched the race, he also did a 17th one, then raced that one goofball that paces him in a 200. Bad move. Might have been his race right there.
Watched the workout video
You're assuming he will beat Jakob as well? Pretty bold prediction there.
This guy is scary. He will be in the mix for the medals. I don't think he could win gold but I won't be surprised if he medals. That was IMPRESSIVE!
His 12:53 from indoor would rank 5th in the world outdoors right now. I think Grant will be just fine and he is absolutely a medal contender.
Remember when Lagat battled Solinsky at USA’s with that 3:57 last mile. Was that 2011?
that was exciting.
I know Fisher has a much faster 5000m time than Lagat, but I can’t even consider Fisher in the same league at this point.
There is no doubt that Grant is a medal contender. However, he is in no way a lock for anything. The Kenyans, Ethiopians, and Ingebritsen along with Grant should made it an awesome race. I do not think it will be tactical, somebody will push to Pace
No chance he medals. He's won a total of 1 US Champs. Can beat an American-only field on his best day. Some chance (<100%) for a top-10 against the best in the world.
Anything anyone is btc does is worthless. Once one is busted the club deserves zero respect or benefit of the doubt. Ban Jerry.
If the race is fast which I hope so, it’ll take a sub 12:50. Perhaps mid 12:40s… who knows.
If it’s slow it’s anyones race! Grant got out kicked by Klecker, he’ll definitely get left behind by Jakob and co.
Hobbs Kessler TAKES DOWN Teare and all the Americans!! 3:32.61
Fully-rested Parker Valby still couldn't beat a tired Kateln Tuohy
