didnt get to see the race but did this man actually drop a 51 here?
They did a 28 lap 10k?

He may be a Devil but there is no way in Hell he ran :51 for the 3rd lap of the race. Watched the race over again. He goes through 800m near the rear of the pack but only a few seconds off the lead. He went through in around 2:29. 51 seconds later, at 3:20, he hasn't even come off the Bowerman turn. He comes through 1200 in the lead around 3:40, for a 71 second lap. Difficult to see the exact moment he crosses the split/finish line as Uncle Larry is spouting off about Jacob Thomson (of 28 lap SEC 10,000 fame) at that moment.
I was at the East Regional and noticed the 10K runners had some sort of foil tab on the front of their numbers. Probably some issue with that and possibly a human having to fill in some digits for a split that didn't transfer automatically.
Yeah I can't run a 51 unless I'm going downhill. And flashresults messed up all my splits but they have since fixed it
