What a run by @lauramuiruns

That is the question on people’s minds. In London, Muir was the only runner in the field to try and stay with Genzebe Dibaba and Faith Kipyegon after they made a very strong move to the finish after a slow opening 800. Muir ended up fading tremendously the final 200m. Tonight, Muir would not fade (her final 200m was likely 30 low). What was the difference? In London, the pace earlier on was slower (in London they hit 700 in 2:11, today they hit 800 in 2:09) and then much quicker to the finish. Muir clearly is much more suited to running 60 second pace off a moderate pace than trying to run 56 second pace off a slower pace. Muir showed tonight she can hang with Kipyegon, so her decision to try and hang with her in the Olympics doesn’t look quite as foolish now. This was a tremendous run.
