With no heats you would have expected a flat chat race, but with 8 in the mix at lap to go off a slow pace you bring people like Farah and Rupp into the equation.
I'm sure at letsrun they don't see it that way, but it is good to know the Africans can be beaten
What !? Farah was always going to be in the "equation"... he was virtually dictating the race with his presence (fast or slow)... as for Rupp, he is a class distance runner - crikey, he does have a 26:48 10 000m PR! Besides, the East Africans are also known for their kickdown over the last lap - Rupp deserves the silver fair & square in that race.
BTW, Farah's 10 000m PR is 26:46... not to mention his great performance at last year's World Champs. (5 000m - Gold & 10 000m - Silver).
Can't wait to see the 5000m - c'mon channel 9, you can do it - take a few deep breaths & leave the other novelty sports alone for just a few 14min. intervals - please!
