Powell, Rudisha and Uceny Highlight big day in Lausanne

Flotrack Coverage (Results, Interviews and more) One of the most anticipated races of the day in Lausanne, Switzerland was the men's 800, and Rudisha delighted fans with a typically dominating performance. Rudisha is simply on another planet in the 800 right now. Heading into the race, it was going to be interesting to see how Rudisha would race against a pretty solid 800 crew. He didn't seem bothered in the least. While he hasn't raced much because of some problems with tendinitis, he still charged ahead early and looked to get a blow out in....

Photo courtesy imageofsport.com Men's Results Women's Results More Interviews The men's race will surely go down as one of the greatest upsets we've ever seen in a US 1500 meter race, as Matthew Centrowitz continued his meteoric rise in the past month by beating one of the strongest 1500 fields in recent history. The Oregon junior entered NCAA Championships ago having never won an NCAA title.

She actually picked it up over the final K, and looked determined to break 31 in the final lap. She was just...

Khadevis Robinson   With how clutch and consistent Nick Symmonds has been over the past several years, it just doesn't feel right coming into a National Championship 800 with so many questions about how he will fare. He popped a 1:45.09 in early March in Melbourne, but has struggled since. He is always expected to run well at Hayward Field, in front of his adopted home crowd, but he struggled in the Prefontaine Classic weeks ago. He also figures to have plenty of com...

We're sending our top guns out to Eugene for all of the action (make sure to meet up with the Flo crew and top adidas athletes for some morning runs if you are lucky enough to be in Tracktown this week). ...

Verzbicas Chases History Photo courtesy Photorun.net WATCH RACE How on earth can one start off a recap the day after an NCAA Championship with something other than an event at these collegiate championships?
