    Isn't that exactly what Gebremeskel and Longosiwa did? Outsprint Lagat in a slow race?

      I would have much more respect for those who decide to go down in a blaze of glory than those who are happy to jog around at the back and end up where they expected in the firs place. What's the point of being there unless you play to your strengths ?? :?
      I cannot agree more. When there are 15 runners in the final, not all of them cannot possibly be the three best kickers.

      Maybe Gebremeskel and Longosiwa (or another Kenyan) would have ended up with silver and bronze anyway, but they might have had better chances to beat Mo if they and their teammates had employed different tactics.

        They were helped by Iguider, who could not help his own cause since he was passed by Lagat anyway.

          i'm not talking about those 2 who would obviously have a chance at any pace, i'm mean those who are going to come 10-15th , why not give it a go and see if you can lose a few so you may get 8th
          i deserve extra credit
