What a week and we break it all down. Mo Farah got his first world record, Sifan Hassan picked up another, Jacob Kiplimo arrived as a track star, the adidas super shoe is here and Peres Jepchirchir and Kibiwott Kandie ran fast in it.
Caster Semenya won’t be running the 800 in Tokyo. Plus bonus content for LRC Supporters Club members. Members get to hear our thoughts on Ryan Crouser’s great year, whether he could play in the NFL, and our thoughts on the announcer in Ostrava discussing female body types. Plus, what to make of a bear allegedly chasing a runner for 5 miles and causing her to lose her sports bra.
