Hot Pace from the Gun



The 5K tonight on paper looks to be a lock with Rupp, Lagat and Lomong. The 5k, more so than any other event, looks to have the top 3 locked in. With Lagat, Lomong and Rupp in solid form it seems hard to imagine someone else sneaking in the top 3. Stranger things have happened and there is a race for a reason, but it will be a big surprise if one of the top 3 falters.  Top 3 is not enough for these competitors, all 3 want to win the championship. Watch for Rupp to start grinding the pace down with 4 laps to go and Lopez and Lagat sitting for the kick. It shoud be a great race!

With no Diamond League in the schedule, there was no central meeting point for the elite in track and field. Instead, the fastest in the world split up between not one but two street meets and a couple other interesting locations: a distance carnival in Los Angeles, a sprint-heavy meet in Jamaica, and a race in England that had a bar on the track.
