12 men under 4:00. Meet record and state record broken despite high heat and humidity. A lot of personal bests.
Weird season for Nuguse
Did not qualify for NCAA
Did not do well at Trials
However ran twice near PB 3:34.9 this summer (winning both times)
Now mile PB (winning again)
Probably a matter of injuries hampering him earlier, so he couldn't get that sharp when it counted, but he could build off that shape and run some nice times
Jupp, not weird at all indeed. He was just a bit too late due to injury and is not getting consistent and in peak shape. What a shame.

Good run by Aussie Jye Edwards who has been mostly injured since the Tokyo Olympics.
I am really impressed with the improvements Festus Lagat has been making. He is one of the most versatile runners I have ever seen (he was nearly an All American in cross country - 44th). Another half second on his 800 and he might be a legitimate factor internationally at 800. Great to see him running so well.
What happened to Jonathan Davis? Not a great start to his Adidas career.
Anyone know what happened to Jon Davis? He just ran 3:33 a couple weeks ago didn't he?
He is up and down.
Some people are only good at time trials.
