Tyson Gay 10.02 over Yahon Blake 10.07 Heat 1 -.4 wind
Heat 2 Walter Dix 10.08 over Richard Thompson
Slattery really should give it up. Why in the world would you want to run 8:44 in a meet like this?
The men's steeple had a great field. 2 Olympic champs and Paul Koech.
Koech the fastest in the world this year got the best of the 2 Olympic champs (Brimin Kipruto and Ezekiel Kemboi).
Slow early pace with Ben Bruce in the lead.
Then when the running got going it was 3 name stars up front with Koech leading.
Kipruto struggled over the water with 1.5 laps to go.
Koeach still led at the bell but all 3 still together. Kipruto came up on his shoulder with 200 to go but Koech attacked the last water barrier and opened up a gap. He pulled away to win, Kipruto faded to 3rd and Kemboi got 2nd.
8:17 for the winner
