Turns out the US olympic running team will be the only decent team we've got. Lagat (formerly of Kenya) just became a citizen and secured a 5k and 10k spot.

I'm also super impressed by some of the younger talent... Bobby Curtis (St. X in louisville's own) got 6th in trials. Will only get better. Just look at these times. Nice tight pack. Good competition, but still far off the records.
