IAAF wrote:This year’s Exxon Mobil Bislett Games will boast the strongest ever field to participate in the 3000m steeplechase event at the famous Oslo stadium. This event is traditionally dominated by athletes from Kenya and their elite will respond to the starter’s gun in the way they know best; fast and furious and in a race that is sure to ignite the Bislett crowd.

This year a top field has been assembled around the Kenyans and will ensure that the race will be of the highest quality.

A very interesting race. The rabbit, Haron Lagat, took them to 1K in 2:36.4. I got them at 31.3 at the finish line, then roughly 1:34 the next time. At this point, they were on pace for 7:52-53. They cut away, so I couldn't get a split with six-to-go, but at five-to-go it was about 3:43, so 2:09 for two laps, 7:59-8:00 pace. Conseslus Kipruto took over after the kilo, and Ezekiel Kemboi was gapped a bit. However, Kipruto was not able to hold up the pace, running a couple of 66s, and Kemboi caught up to him. They were 7:02 with a lap to go, but Kemboi did not have his sprint on the backstretch; he was straining to keep up. Kipruto pulled away after the last water jump, and won easily. They both ran slower than in Eugene. It was a SB for Kemboi only because he was DQ'd in Oregon. Kipruto has three DL wins, all under 8:05.

BTW, on a seating diagram for Luzhniki stadium in Moscow, it looks like the water jump is outside the track. Can anyone verify this (or contradict it)?

Based on this photograph, it appears to be a standard inside track water jump. Appearances, especially from this far away, can be deceiving.

Pacing early in the SC is deceptive because the barriers are not all present. So, projecting based on 240m or so is very noisy and even the first lap++ is not necessarily highly informative.

The way I do it, it's the same as for any race after one lap, because I only project on laps starting at the finish line, which have all the hurdles and WJ. I never try to project from the first no-hurdle segment, because you don't even know how far they've run, exactly.

In the latest issue of "Spikes", available on rusathletics.com, there is a large-size photo of Luzhniki, and it definitely shows an outside water jump. Also, on the WC website there is a diagram of the stadium, with the sectors, etc., and it shows it outside the 2nd turn.

So, there will be a short distance to the finish line with seven laps to go. This will also affect the kilo points, of course, which can be identified by a camera at each one.
