    There was a leading group of 8 once the pacemakers dropped out. They didn't really start racing until the last 4 miles or so, but it was already noticeable that Kipchoge was not looking that comfortable and was drifting a little back through the pack. On the penultimate lap, I think it was mainly Kitata and Lemma pushing hard from the front and Kipchoge and 3 others were dropped, with Kipchoge eventually falling back to 8th. He admitted in an interview on the BBC that he didn't feel good for the last 15K.

    Kipchoge has been dropped, 4 away at the 'bell'. Kitata, Geremew. Lemma and Kipchumba.

    At 10k, Jared Ward is in 15th place with a time of 30:13.
    By my math, that works out to a 2:08 or better finish time--if he runs the same pace all the way!
    He's 27 seconds behind Kipchoge!

    Kipchoge profiled in the NYTimes: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/10/02/s...-marathon.html


    Eliud Kipchoge Emerges as the Philosopher-King of Running

    He is already the greatest marathoner ever, but Kipchoge, who competes in London on Sunday, has evolved into something of a Zen master as well. Where does that come from? Look to his heritage.
