Start Lists (in Dutch!)

-Manangoi vs. a bunch of random Europeans in the non-DL M1500m...going for a time?

-All three Men's Steeple medalists and the top 9 in the world this year

-Solid w1500m field sans Muir/Dibaba/Semenya, looks like most of the other WC finalists

-A non-DL M400m that is 3/8ths Borlée

I'm definitely excited for this steeple.  I would love to see Jager crush the 8 minute barrier once and for all (and a win on top of that would be even better).

-Jager needs to be able to run away from the field to have any shot at winning a major title. If the race isn't right at 8 minutes or below, Kipruto (and El Bakkali, this year at least) will be there and will blow by him at the end.

-The nonchalant manner in which Lasitskene blows away the competition every time is downright amusing.

-I feel like Simpson's placing relatively poorly in a faster DL kind of race shows how good she is at wringing everything out when all the chips are on the line...there may be several athletes that are faster outright in the field but in a slower race she won't get cheated.
