What a great meet that was. I rarely get entertained by meets anymore.
First I was shocked at the crowd. They were loud and raucous. Doha finally got all the expat Kenyans and Ethiopians out. Sports are about atmosphere.
The crowd makes such a big difference.
Then the performances were off the charts.
Kiprop 3:29, Amos and Aman battling to the line in a "cracking race" as Steve Cram just said, Ukhov 2.41 and a tremendous high jump, Sum impressing and Chanelle Price going sub 2:00, Ezekiel Kemboi entertaining, and then 7 women just went sub 8:30 in the 3k. A "brilliant, brilliant" run by Hellen Obiri as Steve Cram said.
