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.

ahhh.. she even posted a photo with her after the race:

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.

It's becoming Norway vs ETH/KEN... Two guys under 3:50 for this mile, damn! Mile/1500m is heating up lately with this rivalry.

US T&F Championships are going on now.

Lopez Lomong wins the 10k in 27:30, a ~50s PB. dude is nuts.

hah cool. was watching the 1500m (US CHAMPS) and I wanted:

1. Simpson
2. Houlihan
3. Hiltz

and we got:

1. Houlihan
2. Simpson
3. Hiltz

Hiltz being the wild card. She's pretty beast. Great to see her get on Team USA.

That Shelbo kick is ruthless. Excited to see what her & Simpson can do in the World Championships. Top contenders for sure.

diamond league finals.

Sifan doubled 1500m, 5000m. Her teammate gets 3rd. They are becoming a great force in 1500m & 5000m. Now everyone is waiting to see what Sifan tries to double in the World Championships.. 1500m + 10k? or 5k + 10k? 1500m + 10k sounds awesome. I kinda hope she does that. You never hear of someone doing that. The speed & endurance it takes to be able to win both of those is nuts.

Noah doubled 100m, 200m.

Cheruiyot dominates 1500m. Jakob gets 2nd.

300m steeple race was great. awesome finish.
