The Run Down: Manzano, Wheating and Centrowitz get A-Standard in Paris 1500

In a field with 19 competitors, there wasn't much room for error today at Areva Paris. Luckily, all three Americans (and Bernard Lagat) achieved the A-Standard for guaranteed entry to the World Championships in Daegu, Korea. Amine Lalou led a strong field in 3:32.15, with Bernard Lagat finishing on the podium (3rd) in a season best time of 3:33.11.

The Americans competing in Daegu finished in 3:33.66 (Leo Manzano, 6th), 3:34.39 (Andrew Wheating, 9th) and 3:34.69 (Matt Centrowitz, 11th). The standard is 3:35.00 and the 3:34.69 is a big PR for Centrowitz. Official results are here

Also of note, Shalane Flanagan narrowly missed the American Record in the 5000, finishing in 4th in 14:45.20 (Molly Huddle's record in 14:44.76).

The event will be broadcast tonight at 8pm (with the American broadcast team) on Universal Sports.

  1. If you are new to the game, online casinos have actually created a sort of test version which allows you to get acquainted with various game types through video casino games songbacmaxi. You can choose between blackjack, slots, craps, roulette, video poker etc. and get a short free of charge cabaret club casino review tutorial of the rules which does not even require any downloading or registration. Some sites offer a test ride where you can play for free (without any winnings or investments) to get the feel of the game, and you can observe short videos with visual and audio explanation of the rules followed by examples.
