Stockholm Diamond League live results
« on: August 06, 2010, 12:14:42 PM »
The meet just got underway. Live results will be posted here.

The spotlight will be on the Tyson Gay/Usain Bolt matchup. Also of interest to those of you likely to read this will be the men's 5000m. Chris Solinsky is sounding like he's primed and ready to go, Galen Rupp is in the field, and including Solinsky there are a total of 13 runners with sub-13 minute PRs.

Bolt beat, and by a full tenth.  That is pretty big.


Speaking of big, Solinsky improved on his PR, though is still short of the AR, and Rupp DNFed.
Why dink around? Go for it, be the best. It is worth whatever risk there is even if you fall short. You will be better.

Indeed, beat fairly solidly and, from what I've heard, his second slowest time in a final ever at the international level.

Yes, Solinsky had yet another very solid race. In a field with 13 runners coming in with PRs of under 13 minutes, he finished 5th while breaking his recently established PR. He has another race coming up pretty soon, it will be interesting to see if he continues on this kind of roll.
