                Maybe one reason they didn't put Koech in there instead of Matelong is that Matelong teamed with Kipruto and Kemboi for a sweep last year, while Koech finished 7th in 2005, as Kemboi/Kipruto were beaten by Shaheen. He did, however, win bronze in Athens behind Kemboi and Kipruto, when Shaheen was blocked from competing. This year, it was Kemboi who "under-performed" in 7th.

                Looking back at the Oly/WC results, I was surprised to see that Bernard Barmasai made the Kenyan SC team in 2001 after not winning a medal in 1999 (5th) and 2000 (4th). He finally got bronze in 2001, in another sweep. In 2003, Michael Kipyego had the temerity to finish 9th in his HEAT.

                  Bummer to see Koech miss out on the Olympics but that's the way it goes. Kenyan officials indicated they would change the selection process after Kemboi finished a disappointing 7th for them when they were going for the sweep.

                    kenyan selectors are too dumb to change anything

                    if they were going to do this, they shouda done it after '92, when moses missed selection for 3ksc, despite being wc - maybe only excuse they coud have had was that he may have been wc, but not overly fast clockings at that time in his career - that argument died when he broke the 3ksc wr by 3s, aouita's 3k wr & missed aouita's 5k wr by 2.54s off completely inept pacing ( looked good for 12'55 that day, when wr was 12'58.39 )

                    or they had another chance in '96 when komen failed to get selection & then ran a little matter of 7'20 a few weeks later

                    kenyan selectors will have to have a gun to their head before they make sensible decisions
