      Apart from the w400 this is the most interesting race for me. As Tim Hutchings said, Mo Farah is rumoured to be attempting to break Dave Moorcroft's 13:00.42 UK record from 1982 (a WR at the time).

        Yeah, this is 3.000m pace: 1.28 at 600m... around 2-flat at 800m... 2.33 at 1.000m.

        About 3.53,4 for Bekele at 1.500m. Pacer: 5.13,42 at 2.000m. 7.55,65 (2.42,23). ca: 8.27 at 3.200m.

        Group was roughly 9.00,4 with four remaining. 10.04,5 roughly with three remaining; Farah in the lead. 10.36,70 at 4.000m. ca 11.08,4 with 800m remaining. Forget sub-13.00.

        Bekele leads with a lap remaining: 12.11,3. 12.39 at 4.800m.

        Bekele holds off opposition down straight, runs 13.04,88 (53,38/2.28,18).

            You'd expect the pacemakers to be much better for Oslo...

                Mo needs a scintallating last 1km. British record is out of sight but he can get a PB.

                    Bekele's last 1.600m was roughly 4.00,1.

                      Isn't it nice to know you can throw down a 53 at the end of one of those? :shock:

                        I think he still ran 13:12/13:13 which would be his 3rd or 4th fastest 5k ever. It's not a bad result - not what we were hoping for, but he really needed to push on in the 4th km. But I've never seen him get so involved in the race up at the front with the big boys before.

                          He's doing everything right and it's starting to show in his self-confidence while competing at the highest level. Just a matter of time berfore he busts the Big One. Hang in there, Brits!


                          Of equal importance is the example he's setting for the next generation.
