The results are in, and after watching the Rome leg of the Diamond League I think I learned a few things. Prefontaine is only two days away, so things could change a bit over the next 48 hours. Results of the meet can be found here, so without going into each and every race and result, here are my thoughts on what happened in Rome Read More...

D.A.M.N.! If today's meet in Doha was the"opening act" of the Olympic year,  I can hardly wait for the denouement in London - it's going to bring down the house! Today's events were Olympic in quality across the board and began to fuel plot lines that will only be answered by a gathering of all the world's best into one stadium Read More...

Will 2012 be the Year of the Double?

I was reviewing the Marathon Trials finish last night and wondering how well Shalane Flanagan will do doubling in the 10,000/Marathon, when it hit me: we may have more legitimate “doublers” heading into London than ever before!

Worlds Opening Day – All Kenya

The opening day of every major is filled with qualifying rounds, and day one in Daegu was no different with only two finals on the docket. If there’s such a thing as making a statement on opening day however, the Kenyan women did just that in those two finals as they swept the medals in both the marathon and 10,000 meters – and added a non medaling fourth place in the 10K! In the marathon the Kenyan’s set the stage for the day, and possibly this championships, as they went to the front early on and worked as a team, methodically burning away the competition Read More...
