Road To Eugene 1500 Video and General Recap

My friend Mark Misch emailed me a link to the video of the race from Sunday. Check it out at: My host "mom" here in Eugene, Kathleen Gray, emailed me a recap of the race that somebody emailed her. I can't say that it's 100% accurate but I'll post it in case you'd rather read the details instead of watch the 4 minute video. "Men's 1,500m Run:Off the line they come out bunched up, with Vermillion setting the pace as the rabbit followed by Tegenkamp of Nike and Ian Dobson of Adidas. They hit the line for the first time as Vermillion starts to set a faster pace from the field on the backstretch and the field adjusts to catch up to him. McKenzie of Nike and Canada moves into fourth place as they come to the front stretch. Vermillion, Tegenkamp, Bolden, and McKenzie leading the pack as they get to the line for the second time. 2:00 800m split for Vermillion. All in a row as they come around the curve. Vermillion drops off as the pace setter and Tegenkamp, Bolden, Scherer as they hear the bell tone for the final lap. Bolden comes up on the outside shoulder of Tegenkamp as they hit the back curve. McKenzie moves into third and now into second as they comes to the stretch. McKenzie passes into the lead and the win with 10m to go and he wins the race in 3:39.93. Tegankamp finishes second in 3:40.34, followed by Scherer, formerly of Oregon, in 3:41.05."
