By kevinschmidt on Aug 04, 2008
- U.S.'s Hall is in it for long haul - "He's perhaps the greatest marathon talent we've had in the U.S. for a long time, if not the greatest we've ever had." (Alberto Salazar)
- 1,500-meter runners living American dream at games - All three of our 1500 runners have a story of how they got here.
- Olympic Track Stars to Watch - A great summary in pictures of the top athletes at the Olympics.
- Symmonds focused on 800 - "But will Symmonds have lost some of his competitive edge by not racing in Europe? Seven weeks will have passed by the time Symmonds steps on the track for the 800 prelims in Beijing." Let's hope not.
- Beijing Air Thick on Monday - The picture tells a thousand words. "While the sky was blue several days last week, it was smoggy and humid here Monday, four days before the opening ceremony for the Beijing Games." Saturday and Monday pictures, quite a difference.
