I just read this on the letsrun write-up but didn't see the tv. Sounds so funny.
Quick Thought #3: A few interesting tidbits came up about Bernard Lagat on the BBC telecast which you’d never see on a US broadcast. First Steve Cram pointed out Lagat is still the Kenyan record holder at 1500. Then when the race was over the loud-speaker started playing (we guess for all USA wins), “Born in the USA,” and Cram pointed out how the song wasn’t really accurate.
