      What will determine if KB doubles? Just how he feels after the 10?

        I assume he will wait. Geb didnt double in Atlanta cause the hard track made his feet sore. I hope Bek doubles, i dont believe the 10 will even be a contest so his actual first "race" will be the 5.

          Tadesse will make sure he has a tough run in his legs though.
          Nice photo of Lagat's foul on Kipchoge!

            Hey! Lagat is such a nice guy, he would never do anything unethical ...

            That said, Lagat is clearly not the same athlete he was in 2007 and will be lucky to medal in either of his events.

            It will be too bad if Bekele doubles back as everyone will defer to him, cater to his tactics and run for 2nd. It would be interesting to see Kipchoge and Kipsiro try to beat each other without having to bother about Bekele.

              3:32 and 7:32 is not to shabby.

                The 10k final is on the 17th and the 5k heats are on the 20th with the final on the 23rd. Last year was exactly the same. In my opinion it would be a huge mistake for KB not to double.

                  Zurich on the 28th, Brussels on the 4th, and WAF on the 12th-13th.
                  Perhaps also important considerations.

                    Great point K.I.R. and shows you see the big picture when some of us, me, have tunnel vison. ops:

                      What did he run last year?

                        He ran both, but he was not also chasing the million dollars. Having achieved the double in Beijing, he may not consider it important enough to jeopardize his chance at the big $$$$$$$$$$$.

                          Oh I see now. Was this the reason he was left out of the formcharts?

                            Not to mention the medal contest.

                              Last year he recorded these results after the 5k final on the 23rd...

                              08/29/2008- -Weltklasse- -Zürich SUI- -5000m- -12:50.18- -won


                              08/31/2008- -Aviva British Grand Prix- -Gateshead ENG- -3000m- -7:31.94- -won

                              That was it for his season.

                              Chew on this.
