Don't know why, I low key have a crush on her. Was hoping my #1 eye candy was in this race, Denisa Rosolova. 8-)

I understand, she is naturally charming and likeable. She looked absolutely stunned to get on the podium last year. I love this picture of her.

It's a picture I'd show somebody to explain what pure joy looks like.

Though Rosolova is lovely, just lovely.

Spencer - 5th
Demus - 6th

3 PB's in that race.

Wow, these two finished way down....a slow start to the season for them.

Outstanding finish by Kiprop, who was halfway down the field at the mid-stage....3:32.39.

Women's 100m....

SAFP wins in 10.93! A WL....

Jeter crosses in third, collapses with a quad problem, I think. SAFP helping to untie Jeter's shoes, and helping her.

Yeah, I believe it's his first this season. But 44.02 already? with a lot of work to go, I was joking a little with my original comment but it'll be one tough task for LM. Good chance those 3 guys could be the medalists in Moscow.

Gatlin was eating up that last 40m. Had he run a better curve he might have taken it.

U think had he been in one of the better lanes he would've had a better performance? To me he looked so tight in lane 3...like he didnt have Enuff room to move.
