DAEGU...LAST DAY...HIGHLIGHTS

What a last day today in Daegu!!!
I have seen many good races and had fun!!
My best emotion:Mo Farah won 5k against an incredibile Bernard Lagat!!2'27 last km says us how strong thay had finished.Mo has teached by mistakes of 10k and started a little bit later in the sprint.Nobody,neither kenyan nor ethiopian can beat two these guys this year!!An amazing show!!!
800m women...what can u say after these superb times....the podium really incredible fast with times unpredictable before the race!!Really surprised from Savinova and Semenya:Jepkosgei was the first normal at the finish line!!Hope to russian and soutafrican in next races till the end of season if they will be to confirm what have donne today in Daegu.
Amazing the marathon with an astonishing Abel kirui to win the medal again.In second half he had run 3 minutes faster than the first one and these will be effects of new coach:italian Renato Canova.
My personal compliments and congrats to italian Ruggero Pertile able to start slow but finishing very strong in 8th position:one guy who understand the race better than anyone and the results are speaking to him:a good job Rero!!!
This is the final race of the day but probably one of the great in all WC in Daegu.Jamaicans did everything in better way and they run  a shocking 37"04 new WR!!Heard someone speaking about Asafa Powell inside to run under 37":i am not agree because these guys,running together more times will be able to do it by themselves!!!Usain in last have pushed totally and the gap is became without finish..The younng french team catch the silver and St.Kitts and Nevis an unhoped bronze.
Some troubles between americans and british:Harry Aikines with muscles too big catched the third american and going down both creating also troubles to the fast train of Trinidad seemed very fast in the winning-heat

In last period,the road to Barcellona is went through this quality training-workouts: Tuesday 21st January: 30 km in Moiben (15 going + 15 back) in 1:45:46  (medium speed  3’31”5) Saturday 25th January: 10 x 400m in 1’09” (recover 1’) + 10 x 200 in 32”5 (rec. 1’) + 5 x 400 in 67” (rec. 1’) + 10 x 200 in 31”5 (rec. 1’) with …
