I was thinking yesterday of who my favorite US mid distance runners are.
I was thinking Derrick, Lagat, Andrews and maybe Jager (in that order).
After this video, I'm thinking Lagat is number one. He's been the most classy US runner in the last decade. Just positive all the time and classy with all his competitors. I wish that he would have come in third (and displaced the guy that came in third today).
I was also thinking of who my less favourite runners are. But I'll spare you that list.
It would be interesting to know who Letsrun's favorite athletes are.
Put up a list of the 800m finalists and the top 12 in the 1500, steeple, 5000 and 10000 and have people choose 3 athletes.
It would be interesting to see where they all rank.
