    He needs to get the Trials moved to sea level, like the 10k.
    Only 7th at today's Kenyan Olympic Trials in Nairobi (8.36.29, way back from the top).

    Cheruiyot has really got Defar's number now, it appears.
    T Dibaba is supposed to go in Eugene 10K tonight. Per AI, she's entered in 5K New York, too.

    Take it for what it's worth, but Paul Koech was the #1 trend worldwide on Twitter for a couple of minutes after this race. So there still seems to be a broader interest in the sport besides Usain Bolt if something captivating happens.
