Dix_Walter-Doha12.jpgWalter Dix, 2012 Doha DL, Men's 200m, photo by PhotoRun.net

Walter Dix was the clear winner here. Running well from the start, Dix went around the turn and as he took off down the straight, the party was over. Dix won by .24 over Churandy Martina and Jaysuma Saidy Ndure. Dix seems to get himself ready when the medals are on the line.

LaShawn Merritt, the 2008 Olympic Champ, 2009 WC champ, and 2011 silver medalist, is ready to roll. He ran one of the smoothest 44.19 that I have ever seen. Merritt came out of the blocks well, and just powered around the back stretch, then off the turn, he just moved away. Angelo Taylor finished in third in 44.97. Second placer, Lugue Santos is 19!

David Rudisha is, simply put, the best male 800m in the world. Rudisha hit the 400m in 50.39 and then ran 52.22 for the second go round. Rudisha let loose down the final straight, and he just powered away. Looking forward to seeing him in New York at the adidas GP.

Asbel Kiprop has some competition. Silas Kiplagat is at the top of his game. When he went by Kiprop, Kiprop faltered, almost falling, Kiplgat steadied him, then just shot down the straight, holding off Kiprop, 3:29.63-3:29.78. Bethwell Birgin was third in 3:31.17. Ryan Gregson of Australia ran 3:33.92 for 11th, and Russell Brown of the US, 12th in 3:34.11, in twelfth place. Note that Abubaker Kaki was 13th in 3:34.34.

Paul Kipsiele Koech is an amazing steeplechaser. He not only runs fast, he knows how to hurdle. RBR watched Koech run several solo steeplechases. I recall watching him run 8:05 at the adidas Grand Prix NYC.

This time, Richard Kipkemboi Mateelong and Paul Kipsiele Koech duked it out, running nearly world record pace the entire race. With two laps to go, Mateelong and Koech going hell bent for the win. Paul Koech and Mateelong duked it out around the final lap, with Koech running a screaming 7:56.58, and Richard Mateelong finished second 7:56.81. Two men under eight minutes! Roba Gari, finished third in 8:06.16.

Chondrokoukis_Dimitrios-Doha12.jpgDimitrius Chondrokokis, 2012 Doha DL, high jump, photo by PhotoRun.net  

Chondrokokis, Williams and Hanany were in there at 2.30m. Chondrokokis took three to clear 2.32m, Williams held his last attempt, after missing 2.32 twice, for 2.34m. That is what a gambler does, and in the high stakes of global high jumping, it is the attribute that Jesse Williams needs to get to the next level. Williams missed this time, and so did Chondrokokis, at 2.34m.

The high jump has high drama, and Chondrokokis and Williams made it dramatic in Doha.

Aleksandr Who? Well, that won't happen anymore. While everyone was talking about Godfrey Mokoena and Greg Rutherford, Aleksandr Menkov of Russia took control of the long jump in the fourth round with his personal best of 8.22m!
Godfrey Mokoena took the lead in round 1, with 8.08, then jumped 8.10m in round 2. In round 4, in response to Menkov's big one, Mokoena jumped 8.10m in round 4.

World leader Greg Rutherford (8.32m) hit 7.98m. Chris Tomlinson withdrew after round 1, not getting a mark, with what has to be perceived as an injury.

Aleksandr Menkov? The 2012 World Indoor bronze medalist is now on my short list!

Women' results

Felix_AllysonFL-Doha12.jpgAllyson Felix, 2012 DL Doha, 100m, photo by PhotoRun.net

Allyson Felix has opened her 2012 season well. The tough victory over VCB, 10.92-10.94, with Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, 11.00, Blessing Okagbare, 11.01, LaShaunte Moore, 11.13, Mikele Barber, 11.13, Kerron Stewart, 11.16, should open some eyes quite wide. This means that the women's 200 meters, with Felix and VCB in London 2012, could be the second most exciting race in London 2012. Lots of comments on Allyson's bright yellow compression socks.

Word started coming through in February that Pamela Jelimo, the fastest active women's 800m runner (1:54.01) was back in shape. Jelimo took no prisoners in Doha, hitting the 400m in 57.64, the 500 in 1:26, and then, dug in an ran a 1:56.94. That world leader, with Fantu Magiso in 1:57.90, Janeth Busieni in 1:58.50, Yuneisy Santiusy in 1:59.26, Emma Jackson in 1:59.37 and Molly Beckworth in 1:59.51 PB. Seven under 2 minutes!

When Pamela Jelimo is fit, she is to the women's 800m what David Rudisha is to the men's.

This race lived up to its hype because Cheruiyot and Defar are in top form and this race should get the world excited about the women's 5,000 meters in London. Stephanie Twell lead early on and kept the pace honest.

For Defar and Cheruiyot, it came down to the last 200 meters, actually the last 300 meters. A sixty second last lap and the difference at the end was .05, 8:46.44-8:46.49, with Vivian Cheruiyot taking the win. Meseret Defar is back, so lets see how crazy this year gets.
