Congrats to @RyanHillNCState atop the 3k US list with Bob Kennedy and @Lagat1500
The rabbit continued until 600m with Souleiman leading the racers. Souleiman continued to lead around the final turn as Jonathan Kitilit who impressed in the 1000m in Lausanne on Thursday was right behind him. Double Rio Olympic silver medallist Taoufik Makhloufi started to move up around the bend and was in fourth position as Souleiman hit the final straight in front. Kitilit went by Souleiman and looked poised to get his first Diamond League win until Makhloufi started inching up on him. But then like a firecracker, Alfred Kipketer made a crazy late charge to get the win in 1:42.87. Kipketer had been in 6th with 100m to go, but got the win and went under 1:43. Makhloufi got 2nd and then nearly the entire rest of the field came streaming across the finish in the next second.
