RABAT (MAR): Gesa-Felicitas Krause was pleased to win her first Diamond League race of her career in Rabat and will train at altitude in Switzerland ahead of the World Championships. "I think I never finished higher than fifth in these races. This was a race on my level. It was not about fast times today but about winning the race. It is a great feeling to win a race like this. Today, I was able to show good tactics and a strong finishing kick. I will continue to work on that in a training camp next week in Switzerland," she said.

RunBlogRun: Lesson number one, if someone makes a World Champ final, they can very much be a medal contender. Steeples have barriers and water jumps, which mean that runners can fall over them, hit them, and they do.
