And once again he did it with his kick.

LRC analysis. Didn't realize he didn't have the standard.

The final guy to watch for is the University of Portland’s Woody Kincaid. It may seem ludicrous to suggest that a guy who was just 9th at NCAAs four weeks ago could make it onto the Olympic team, but Kincaid beat Rupp on June 23 and closed in 53.72 to win his prelim on Monday. Kincaid’s wheels are the real deal. There’s only one problem: he doesn’t have the Olympic standard of 13:25.00. In a 13:5x race, he’d have an outside shot at a top-three finish. But Kincaid hasn’t fared as well in faster races (NCAAs was fast, and even when he beat Rupp in a 13:2x race, Justyn Knight still beat him handily). It’s a Catch-22.

Woody missed out making the Olympic team, but he's got many good years of running ahead of him! #runwoodyrun

Interesting race. Woody lead for the first two laps or so at a crawling pace. Then, Schrader took off by himself. Kincaid covered the move and it was those two out front for awhile. Eventually the pack caught back up. Woody was boxed in on the last couple laps, but I'm not sure he had the kick left in him. Not sure why he felt the need to cover that early move, especially if he had been content with the slower pace at the start. I know he didn't have the A standard, so I figured he would need to run in such a way to get it.

Dude just ran 13:12 today. That's what we call "big time."

Woody came in 13th overall this evening but 3rd in the first of two semi-final heats and easily qualified for the 5000m final on Sunday with a time of 13:43.41.

With a forecast of of 107 (Google told me 112) in Eugene on Sunday, it is a good thing Woody will be running at 10 in the morning when the temps should be in the mid-80s.

Woody's personal best is 12.58.10 and he ran a 13.39.96 five years ago in Eugene to place 8th ahead of Galen Rupp, but missing his opportunity to go to Rio de Janeiro...

Woody now has two tickets punched for Tokyo after finishing this morning's 5000m final in 3rd place with a time of 13.27.13.

Rio Silver Medalist Paul Chelimo, 13.26.82, was 1st followed by Woody's Nike/Bowerman Track Club teammate Grant Fisher, 13.27.01, in 2nd.  Chelimo seemed to force Fisher and Kincaid wide coming around the final turn to make them run further, and the tactic worked as neither really threatened to takeover 1st.

There was no doubt Woody still had something left in the tank at the end as he was looking around approaching the finish to ensure the young UO runner in 4th wasn't going to catch him.
