Engels, Andrews, el al. in the 1500 at Track Town meet tomorrow night in Portland. It will be interesting to see how the world championship qualifier strategy plays out over this race and the next few weeks. Of course, if Andrews gets it then he is in and the chase is over. I can't see it happening in an 8 man race with no pacers or faster runners. I think it may come down to July 20th in Europe.
LRC Note Ken Goe reports Lopez Lomong will rabbit them to 2:52 at 1200m
We're making this the official TrackTown Summer Series Portland Thread but mainly for now it should be the Men's 1500 Prediction.
Who wins the 1500 and does Andrews get the Standard?
Really good US field.
