Lausanne DL Preliminary Entries

Now on the homepage:

Most interesting for me is to see how Kimberlyn Duncan opens in her first race since the US Trials. Pretty sure this is her first individual race in a DL meet- she did race in a 4x100m relay in Monaco previously.

Gay vs Powell and Kemar Bailey-Cole in the 100m on that fast track. Should be a great race and I'm curious to see just how fast Gay will run who's in tremendous form at the moment.

While not 'high', and certainly not earning an 'a', the altitude provides a little bit of assistance in the sprints. Site of some surprising 200s.

And conversely not a great place to try and run a fast 5000.

Are you guys serious? Isn't Lausanne about 500m above sealevel? That's about the same as Munich and Viren ran a 10000m WR there in 72, so i really don't think that altitude is either a problem for longer distances or an advantage for sprints. And if i remember correctly there was a fast 5000m there in 2011 where 3 or 4 guys ran below 13 minutes.

Yes I'm serious norunner. I remember talking to Matt Tegenkamp after he struggled through a 13:27 in 2007 when he was sure he was ready to run under 13:10. You write of 2011 when three guys (Chepkok, Merga & Kipchoge) ran 12:59 but what you should be aware of is they all ran 12:54/55 that year and the race in Lausanne was set up to be 12:50 race. Irrespective of what the altitude reading says, it seems as tough to run a super-fast 5000 as it is relatively easy to run a fast 200. Just an observation, let's see what happens this year......

Wow, what fantastic line-ups. Lausanne looks particularly incredible all-around. Very excited for the m100, mSP, m5k, w100h, and Okagbre in the wLJ!!!

If the Paris 5K is a speedburner, Molly Huddle seems to be in shape to maybe challenge her own AR!!

What a trooper Dylan Armstrong is! He was here at a media event in Victoria, B.C., a few hours ago. Now he's off to throw in Lausanne, and then will be back in Victoria on Friday, for the finals of the National Track League. That's 8 time zones each way!

Amos has been injured and ran a very mediocre 48.79 at Algiers a couple weeks ago. Will be interesting to see if he's back in form yet.

Also very interested in the mTJ, with world leader Pichardo making his DL debut against in-form Taylor and Tamgho. Pichardo seems to have developed a habit of taking one or two jumps and passing the rest but I doubt he can get away with that approach here :)

Weird fact: despite the long TJ traditions of both countries, a Cuban and an American have never jumped 17.50 in the same competition! Not saying that will change in Lausanne - it's very unlikely - but the possibility is there.

The Lausanne W1500 has 4 Americans in it: G Anderson, Rowbury, Uceny, and Lea Wallace.
Someone named Aregawi is also entered! :D

I'm thinking (or at least HOPING!!) this may be the meet we finally see the "old" Morgan Uceny....meaning the pre-2013 Morgan Uceny!!

Lea Wallace might surprise.
Mostly an 800 runner, she's raced often this year, and might have a big breakthrough over 1500 meters.
Her PR is listed as just 4:10.77.

I was looking forward to see Felix. Is she injured or something? She has been running so sparingly lately. I know she ran a windy sub-22 and all and I also know she is one of those athletes who doesn't run that much on the circuit, but I'm not used to her pulling out of meets.
