Monoco Diamond League was epic.

biggest news of the night, Sifan Hassan breaks the women's mile WR (4:12.x). She got a horrible start too.. had to really work to catch the pace maker.

Jakob tried to battle Cheruiyot up front in an incredible race. Cheruiyot breaks 3:30 again.

Nijel Amos going under 1:42 for 800m again.

Noah losing to Gatlin in the 100m by a hundredth.

Men's 400m was a debacle.. really sucks. Someone false started, but two guys kept running and finished the 400m, only to find out that the race had stopped nearly a minute ago. Both of those guys couldn't (obviously) compete when they started the race again. To top it off, the guy who false started didn't even get disqualified, and was able to race.. wtf?

her celebration was awesome.

a competitor congratulated her well after the race, then told her to go take a lap, and Sifan asked her to run the lap with her. lool.

I ❤️ the feeling of after my race WR 4️⃣:1️⃣2️⃣.3️⃣3️⃣🙀.... congratulation to @lauraweightman1 you’re awesome 👏🏾.

I don't really think that was going to happen, until Sifan received the "epic congrats" from Weightman. It seemed Sifan just really appreciated it & now has a new best friend lol. That's the vibe I get anyway.

pretty cool.

epic last lap between Jakob & Gebrhiwet at the Lodon DL 5000m.

my dude rhonex fell off at the end. he's more of a 10k+ guy tho, IMHO.
