Eugene, OR – We’ll have a full recap of the women’s 800 with analysis, quick takes and interviews later, but for now hear about the race from the women who ran it. It was a race full of drama as two pre-race favorites found themselves on the wrong side of some contact which saw Brenda Martinez tripped out to lane 3 or 4 and Alysia Montano taking a hard fall with less than 150m to go.
