Is 800U Rounding Into Shape For The Trials?

Both Isaiah Harris (800M) and Brannon Kidder (1500M) will be lacing their spikes up in the NCAA Finals in Eugene next weekend, but what about the other 800U stand-out?

Casimir Loxsom has been somewhat quiet this year as he is building up for a shot at the Olympics.  This is opposite of the criticism from wannabes and never-wases on the message boards moderated, encouraged and sock-puppeted by haters within and without our community.  Cas should not be suffering from burn-out or over-racing leading up to the Trials.

Yesterday was a strong step in that build-up at the Music City Meet where he stepped into an advertised attempt at the world record in the 600M, one of his strongest events.  The race was dealt a big blow with the pull out of Duane Solomon at the last minute, but went off anyway.

Casimir ran a strong 2nd place behind Charles Jock (1:14.96 to 1:14.92).  I can't wait to see what is next!
