    Quite probably an afterthought, after the hotter-than-hell conditions that dropped 1/3 of the women's field, and Kenenisa Bekele's hotter-than-hell final 6K that missed the WR in Berlin by 2 seconds. :-)

          Ayala with a 1-minute gap over the field at 5 km (!).

          He's gone out at 2:07 pace because why the heck not.

            According to Tilastopaja, Ayala ran the Buenos Aires Marathon on September 22nd. I find that hard to believe!

              1:05:56 at halfway.

              Seems the conditions today aren't quite as punishing as previous days, "only" 29°C and humidity somewhat lower.

              Ayala on the roadside, seems like DNF.

                    The thing is Tadese has been a 10k/HM star who always had problems with lasting the whole 42.195k.

                      Callum Hawkins has reportedly been training for the Qatar heat by running in a shed heated up to 39C. It seems to be paying off, as he's hanging on to a place in the top 10.

                        Hawkins now in 5th and gaining on the leaders!

                          Hawkins caught up with the leading group and even led for a while, but didn't have enough left for the finish. Desisa-Geremew-Kipruto in the podium, as Hawkins repeats his 4th pace from two years ago.

                            They must have been better, with a 2:10:40 for the winner, a negative split and the top dozen within 2 minutes.

                              So, with Desisa winning in a respectable 2:10:40 in a run through hell, who ranks #1? Does he have a respectable outcome in another marathon this year, or did Bekele slam the door shut with his Berlin 2:01:40?
