            Thanks! Any more splits would be appreciated for those of us without a video feed...

              18:59.37 at 7000, 6->7 km 2:44.9
              21:46.67 at 8000, 2:47.3 km
              Masai / Sihine / Kipyego / Abdullah leading at 9000, no split
              Sihine wins in 27:06.98, last lap 58.5. About 150 meter kick from Sihine.

                They set off the fireworks for the Golden League prize presentation . . . while there were still 3 laps left in the men's 10K. All of the runners get to breathe smoke for their final laps.

                  Sihine is holding his stomach, the smoke may have affected him.

                      Nice to see Sihine win a race now and then. He's finished 2nd to Bekele in the last four Oly/WC 10K races, 2nd to Benjamim Limo in the '05 5K (pretty good double!) and was 3rd to Bekele/Geb in '03 10K. He's a "winning horse" except when Bekele is in the race.
                      Cheers,

                        He is indeed a strong candidate for ``worst career timing of all
                        times''---he might even be ahead of Mike Powell by now.

                          He was also 2nd in the 10000 meters in the 2002 world junior championships, behind Gebre Gebremariam.

                          Has he ever lost to a non-Ethiopian in the 10000 meters?

                            He was 9th in Brussels in 2002:

                            That's the only one I can find, though.
