    Wow, what a race! An incredible acceleration by Paul Koech that obliterated the rest of the field. And boy, Olympic and World Champion Brimin Kipruto looked like he'd completely forgotten how hurdle. He nearly fell on the water jump a few times, and his landings were all over the place. I think Koech has found a new strategy instead of busting it from the gun. Making the last 3 or 4 laps fast and hard just took out 2 of his biggest competitors.

        Koech 13, Kipruto 10, Kemboi 7. Kipruto and Koech 2-2 in DL wins. Koech 3-2 overall. Any of the 3 can still win.

          Yes, I thought Kipruto looked very strong until, on the (I think) penultimate WJ, Koech stepped on top while Kipruto hurdled it and almost fell, staggering a bit then having to fight Kemboi off. The last WJ was almost a repeat. After that, it was all over. Koech looked very strong in the stretch, however, and probably would have won anyway.
