Festival of Yes, Some Excellence

Almost all the pre-meet publicity focused on Usain Bolt (yawn) and Canada's two women hurdlers (double yawn), but I went in the hopes that it would be simply a good track meet.
And hey it was! Good job University of Toronto.
I think I may have seen the fastest 5000 metres run I have ever witnessed in person, run by a front-runner all on his own, and one of the few sub-four-minute miles I have ever seen.
For that, sitting in the rain for a couple of hours was a small price.
(Oh by the way, Usain Bolt won his event, yawn, and Canada's two hurdlers came one-two in their event, yawn again.)
