Plain and simple it was a great race. Early pace was slow but a strong move opened things up for the favorites. Then one by one they started dropping off and dropping out. Sell comes up for the final spot. And what a race by Khalid for 4th. Not many thought he'd even finish. And big props to Dan Browne. There is someone else that many had written off but he put himself in position late in the race. Time for a run.

As you watch the Olympic Trials online at NBC starting bright and early at 7:30 est. keep a window open on Flotrack, or a tab open if you have upgraded your ie in the last year, becuase Anthony Famigliti and Flotrack are going to be doing some video blogs as the race is in progress. Fam gave me a call a day ago and came up with this idea. We really don't know if it is going to work but we are going to try and get some behind the scenes interviews and..... Well I don't really know whats going to happen but i think it deserves a tab.
You're a Gator? Oh well. Go Dawgs. I too skipped the game today, but thats cause I wanted to watch this and I have a hard track workout now that the race is over.
So did anyone else hear the announcer write off Sell around mile 15 or 16? It was the female who said "I wouldn't say that. There's a lot of race to go".
Rock on travelingathlete. You made my day. I stayed home today and skipped going to the Gators game to watch this. I would have been completely pissed had you not come through.
What a great race. The real hero of the day was the guy who gave us the the link that allowed us to finally see it. A gold medal to you sir(or miss).
That puts Sell up to 5th but still a minute back. Some good running and good luck and he can be right back in there.
Khalid moving up. 14 sec back from the pack of 5. If he joins the pack how more exciting can this race get.
Sell trying to move up, but how can he catch all of those ahead. Did he wait to long and miss the move?
Hall and Abdi doing a little talking. Big 4 now cruising. Tough to say who won't make it. I doubt anyone can come up on this group it is a matter of who will fall off. Never thought the race would be like this at mile 11.
