Bolt over Powell, 9.79 to 9.85. Wind +0.6
Culson runs the first sub 48 of the year, 47.92. World Champ Greene waaay back in 4th in 48.98. I believe that is his second loss this year. Was he undefeated last year?
Gareth Warburton from Great Britain (Wales) runs 1:44.98. His PR at the start of the year was 1:46.47. That gives the British Isles 3 sub 1:45 guys this year. I wonder when that last happened.
Kiprop takes the Dream Mile in 3:49.22.
Gebremeskel takes the 5 in 12:58.92 over an Ethiopian named Hagos Gebrhiwet who ran a PR of 12:58.99. Merga, T. Bekele and K. Bekele followed him across the line. Season’s best for K. Bekele of 13:00.54.
Montsho takes the 400 in 49.68 just off her season’s best.
Pearson runs an = World Leader of 12.49 (0.7). Kristi Castlin of the US takes second in a huge personal best of 12.56??? Prior to this year her best was 12.83 - this year behind this time she has already run 12.68, 12.74, 12.76 and 12.77. Clearly someone to watch for at the Trials.
Great Britain gets another “A” standard in the 400 - Nigel Levine runs a massive best of 45.11 to win the 400.
Taylor loses in the Triple to Russian jumper Lyukman Adams by 3cm basically both at 56’ even.
British 800 trials should be interesting . . .
Nice to see Bolt run in the 9.7s twice in a row.
