Other big times:
Makhloufi - 3:28.75
Farah - 3:28.93
Willis - 3:29.66
Centro - 3:30.4
Other big times:
3:30 and a PB for Centro.
3:36 for Manzano. That's a SB. Does that get him into Worlds?
Manzano is IN to Worlds. By .04.
Sad to see that Francena Mccorory is not on the US 400m team

Equally sad to see that the announcer has still not yet learned to pronounce Mccorory's name.
Did he just say 11 personal bests in that 1500!! No way
Centro was 10th in 3:30.34. ... possibly the fastest 10th place finish ever? Need to look up those stats.
I really though Kiprop would get the world record here! He was going through 1200m in 2:45! Massive respect, he's taken back the crown from Kiplagat.

Let's get real here. About 2 people in Europe care about distance events. As far as what people are going to want to watch:
Long Jump - Can anyone even get close to Bartoletta? They can probably mail her the Beijing gold right now.
Hey dbag, was Spanovic close to Bartoletta or was she too far out in front of her?
Another fun stat. Farah's 3:28.93 broke the WR for fastest 4th place.
Former record was 3:29.58.
Seriously, what is Kiprop on? Embarrassing to watch.
Good race by the others. Centro must be frustrated about the fact that he didn't break 3:30 and that Rupp still has a better mile PR.
Mo is the man. No one will touch him at Worlds.
Francena McCorory was utterly dominant in the women's 400. She had a massive lead at 300 and held on to win in a seasonal best and new world leader of of 49.93 (previous seasonal best and world leader was 49.95).
Quick Thought #1: How did McCorory not finish in the top 3 at USAs? At USAs, she ran the 49.95 world leader in the semis but bombed the final. Well, she didn’t really bomb it as her 50.88 would have placed her 5th tonight. She still could run at Worlds. If Felix doesn’t do the 200/400 double, McCorory will run Worlds and would likely enter it as the favorite.
Is Kiprop really at 70%?
Good gravy! What a beast if slightly true!?
Asbel now the 3rd fastest 1500m performer of all-time.
5th fastest performance ever and he wasn't even pushed.
incredible. amazing how how a 3:30 could look so slow.

....and likely the fastest clean guy.
Tuka who?? Who are you??
Surprise in the 800m !
The look on Soulmans face just said "I should have run the 1500m"
