Slow heat is won by Columbia's Tait Rutherford in a PB of 817. What do the guys in the stacked fast heat - which included two sub 8 guys an 801 guy and 804 guy - do?
They go out in 450 for first 1600. Game over. Around 1k in I was like, 'wait a minute they probably can't close any faster than just under 410 on this track' and when I saw 405 for 1400 I knew it was over.
I've got a post race interview with Rutherford here.:
Photos as well.
PS. This answers all the questions you all have about ivy leaguers having so many typos on the front page. Apparently we aren't good with numbers or letters.
