Wejo’s link of the schedule shows the 1500 is at 15:22 Eastern time.
If that’s the case then I stand corrected with full apologies. I was going by the schedule that I had seen previously which may have been erroneous.
Yeah, they keep tweaking the schedule. M 1500 originally was to be at 3:05 ET. Been raining pretty steady there.
Men's 1500m Final
Women's 5000m Final
You are correct and I was wrong and please accept my apologies. US Eastern time for those finals are 1522 (M1500) and 1542 (W5000). Enjoy, they’re going to be absolutely cracking races.
1. Ingebrigtsen 3:31.7

1. Can 14:47
2. Klosterhalfen 14:49

Grovdal is a big question mark since she’s had recent back problems IIRC, but has probably been the best European 5k woman on the season.
Start was delayed 30 minutes to dry things out.
Given when the 3rd heat of the 200 went, thinking it will be closer to 15:30 eastern.
No need to apologize. I can tell this Ghost is a true fan of the sport.
Garcia Romo looked very labored in the first round. I don't think he'll medal
Heyward did not look great in his prelim.
Mgr in the best position
2:37 - 2:51
Lol, Jakob looked like he was out for a jog
