What a week! We’re still in shock after the 800 meter final, but can’t wait for the 5,000 and the 1500 finals on Sunday. Which means it’s time to roll your eyes at stupid announcers and scream your faces off at your favorite runners … and BINGO! But first, we need to geek out a little over the prelims.

Did you catch the heats? While Heat 1 of the 5,000 was relatively uneventful, Molly Huddle made the Heat 2 runners work! And how about college freshman, the darling of Alaska, Allie Ostrander? How’s this for inspiring:

Speaking of youngsters, In the 1500, another college student, Alexa Efraimson overcame her own almost-fall, and hustled her way into the semis along with Mary Cain. These two will likely join Jenny Simpson, Shannon Rowbury, Brenda Martinez, and the rest of the stacked 1500 finals field!

Getcha BINGO on, yo!
