For those of you not able to see the Lausanne meet on TV, note that Coby Miller ran his 20.04 from the inside lane (Jed are you reading this ?)
Bucher was 5th or 6th with 70m to go, and hemmed in on the inside. He will improve to sub 1:43 later in the season, while Bungei may fade (he's been almost unbeatable so far, but excessive racing may take its toll.
Stephen Cherono beat his 1500pb by 5 seconds, but never looked like threatening the specialists
Bekele ran his last lap in 52.63. The TV commentators played this down as a fast finish in a tactical race, but it was a more impressive piece of running than his 5k in Oslo had been.
What a wonderful athlete Allen Johnson is. A world leading 13.06 for the veteran, who knocks down more hurdles with less detrimental effect than anyone in the history of the event (other than Roger Kingdom). He needed his 13.06, as Olijars was a terrific runner-up.
Discount the slowness of the womens' 100. It took place in a torrential downpour. In good conditions they would have been 0.20 quicker.
Foster was closing fast on Devers in the latter stages of the 100h, but faltered, leaving D a clear winner.
