that is crazy, I read about this, they got rid of the A and B standard, they trying to set a high standard to filter great athletes from the awesome athletes.
to set up a great olympic event.

I am always amazed by the medium distances ( or is it long sprints? ) if you brake them down:
1:45 800m is 8 consecutive 13.1s 100m.
3:36 1500m is 15 consecutive 14.4s 100m.
13:25 5000m is 50 consecutive 16.1s 100m. 50! non stop!! 16 sec each!!! are you fucking kidding me???
woot

yes and that's why alwyn cosgrove and the like's bullshit about "would you rather look like a sprinter or a distance runner" is so dumb. because distance runners's pace is what passes for "sprinting" for most people.
