Discuss here. Watching Section 1. of the 5km.

Btw- What the hell is up with the commentary? or lack thereof?

I can’t believe they were going to charge for this crap. :wink:

no 800m, mile, 2-mile splits. After someone made a move, the announcer would state that “now so in so has taken the lead” a good 45 seconds to a minute after. how does this happen at such a big meet. I’ve seen indoor meets where the commentary guys are talking every second. Certainly there were no 3 minute pauses.

edit: Just in: Abdi runs 13:35 for 5th place? maybe 4th.

I don’t mean to complain though. Glad I’m able to watch it. :smiley:

should probably get out the stopwatch for the men’s 10k if you want to know if they’re going to break it


#3

haha, exactly. I wouldn’t be surprised if the announcer is taking a piss break while Galen is coming around for the last straightaway.

Wouldn’t be the first time he [the announcer] got up and left. Also is anyone getting any sound??


#4

no the announcer left and turned off his mic lol

said he’ll be back with 10 to go


#5

Could it be track & field’s very own attempt at a bad Japanese horror film?

I didn’t to see either race so I hope there will be videos of them out tomorrow.


#6

…wat…he left for until 10 laps to go?

I really hope nobody paid for this coverage. Worst I’ve ever seen/heard.

Oh that’s great. The guy (Kevin?) just came from commentary on Mens Volleyball. Is this done by ESPN??

post stupid quotes by the commentary guys:

“Supposedly there is suppose to be an American record in the men’s 10k”
oh really? that’s a certainty? :stuck_out_tongue:

hah. so tired…must stay awake…

double post:

take from letsrun, use
