  1. Even though it's blurry, that's a great photo. Bronwyn is flying (fast green shoes) and Jim is in shock. Looks like he was moving out into lane 5, but too late!

  2. Bronwyn won over Jim in the 3000m by 0.05 seconds. Earlier in the mile, Jim had been nearly 2 seconds faster than Bronwyn. Who was targetting whom I wonder?

  3. Great picture!
