RE: Lennie Waite
Earlier today (July 11), in Goteborg, Sweden, Lennie Waite ran a season best of 9:37.94 in the 3,000 meter steeplechase (she finished 3rd in a fast race). That time puts her well under the World Championships qualifying time of 9:42.00 (last year, she had a lifetime best of 9:35.91).

Unfortunately, Lennie was NOT named to the British team that will compete in London (that roster was announced today). Although nations can have up to 3 individuals in every event (assuming they've hit the time/mark), the British named only Rosie Clarke, who ran 9:36.75 last month.

Goteborg results.

It appears that the British team has not been finalized. That time should get Lennie to Worlds. Stay tuned.

RE: Lennie Waite
Tomorrow, August 9, Lennie will be competing in the heats of the 3,000 meter steeplechase at the IAAF World Championships. She is in Heat 1 (of 3), scheduled for 1:05 p.m., CDT. Coverage is on NBC Sports Cable.

I think it'll take around 9:22 or so to advance, a time well under her lifetime best. There are 3 heats, with the top 3 in each advancing to the finals automatically, and the next 6 fastest times from all of the heats.

Lennie hung with the lead pack until the last two laps ... but then was left behind, finishing 10th (9:54.97).

The winner (Gesa Felicitas Krause of Germany) ran 9:39.86.

American Colleen Quigley finished third in the heat, but was DQ'd for stepping on the inside lane-boundary line after a water jump.

The NBC commentator said the pouring rain conditions were "miserable."

Or more appropriately, they were British :)

RE: Lennie Waite
In the combined results, Lennie finished 30th of 40 (not counting one "Did Not Start" and Quigley's DQ).

Her first heat was by far the slowest. The runners who finishest 7th in each of the 2nd and 3rd heats beat the time of the 1st heat winner, but did not qualify for the finals, which will have the top three winners of each heat and those runners with the next six fastest times.

One American runner from Portland, Ore., said she was not phased by the conditions. :-)
