US Track & Field Championships


1500 metres – Meeting Record Alan Webb 3:34.82 (2007)

1. Matt Centrowitz 3:37.25

2. Robby Andrews 3:38.75

3. Leonel Manzano 3:38.76

4. Ben Blenkenship 3:38.78

The brutal American system of first three past the post, caught out Ben Blankenship in his breakthrough season. Centrowitz was going away at the finish, as three athletes strained for World Championship qualification.

Another unlucky athlete was Georganne Moline, one of the best 400 metres hurdlers in the world. She chopped her stride going into a hurdle and crashed to the track. A dream gone in a flash.

In the women’s 1500 metres, two seconds separated the first ten, as Jenny Simpson just beat Shannon Rowbury.

The real shocker was Olympic 400 metres champion Sanya Richards-Ross failing to make the final!
