    Quite true.

    Poor guy is this era's Paul Tergat. Well, without the world records and XC titles.

    I guess Kenyans will just have to resign to losing to dominant Ethiopian runners in future generations, as well

    I'd vote for Harald Schmid.

    He was 9th in Brussels in 2002:

    1 Sammy Kipketer [KEN] KEN 26:49.38
    2 Assefa Mezgebu [ETH] ETH 26:49.90
    3 Richard Limo [KEN] KEN 26:50.20
    4 Ahmad Hassan Abdullah [QAT] QAT 26:50.67
    5 John Cheruiyot Korir [KEN] KEN 26:52.87
    6 Patrick Ivuti [KEN] KEN 27:05.88
    7 John Yuda Msuri [TAN] TAN 27:06.17
    8 Gebre-egziabher Gebremariam [ETH] ETH 27:25.61
    9 Sileshi Sihine [ETH] ETH 27:26.12

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

    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?

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

    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.

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