While I was preparing for my 10 AM Eastern class, Bernard Lagat won the 1500 meters race at the Worlds. In a slowly paced race, he was the first of nine guys across the finish line in < 1.2 seconds. There must’ve been a wide front of runners at that finish line!

Full results. Parker provided comments on Mr. Lagat’s win, Mr. Webb’s slide to eighth, etc. Philip Hersh has coverage of the event and runners’ comments; it’s accompanied by a good photo of Mr. Lagat by Mark Baker.
