What a way to end the season. The men's 800 is WAY better than the World Championships final and the men's 5,000 might result in the American record falling. We break it down for you.

2014 IAAF Continental Cup: Men's Preview: Amos Vs. Aman, Jager Vs. Birech, Ndiku Vs. Lagat And A 1,500 Worthy Of The Olympics

Move over, Diamond League finals. The 2nd annual Continental Cup in Marrakech, Morocco is the DL finals on steroids as this two-day meet has $2.9 million in prize money. There should be some great mid-d/distance matchups, including Nijel Amos vs. Mo Aman vs. Adam Kszczot in the 800,  Bernard Lagat vs. Caleb Ndiku in the 3,000 and Jairus Birech vs. Evan Jager in the 3,000 steeple, but we're most excited about the men's 1,500, which one could argue is better than an Olympic final. Plus Duane Solomon will race for the first time in almost two months.

M 5000: Caleb Ndiku Wins Race & Diamond League Title; Galen Rupp Hangs on for 3rd

The winning time (13:07) wasn't super fast so it shouldn't be a surprise that Ndiku got the win as he's won championship races at World Indoors (3k), the Commonwealth Games and the African Championships this year -- it's too bad he hasn't gotten to race Mo Farah. Rupp was right with Ndiku with 200 to go and didn't quite have enough but still hung on for his best 5,000 of the year. Ben True (8th) also ran well and was in contention at the bell.

Zürich Preview: Can Emma Coburn & Jenny Simpson Win Diamond Race Titles? David Rudisha And Nijel Amos Headline A Loaded 800; Can Galen Rupp, Ben True Or Hassan Mead Go Sub-13:00?

The first of the two DL finals should be spectacular as the winner of the men’s 800 and women’s 1500 likely will take home $50,000 and a spot into 2015 Worlds whereas second will get just a $6,000 consolation prize. Plus New Balance teammates Emma Coburn and Jenny Simpson try to bring home DL titles to the USA.
