    Nice to see the Ethiopians competitive in the event, and using team tactics. Excellent run by Kipruto. Girma could be great.

    Although I'm not surprised that Kipruto won, it is amazing considering he basically had no season. Great move by Girma to go for the win and a sprint to the finish for them both.

    Amazing sprint photo-finish!

    It looked to me, and the commentators, that he was telling Kigen not to sprint, that they didn't need to.

    I'm sure it's eagerly anticipated in Kenya and Morocco.

    Not for me! I love the steeple!

    Plenty of storylines. Can Kipruto get back to somewhere near his best to take gold? How will the somewhat patchy El Bakkali do? Both are capable of looking like crap but then making up a 30m deficit on the last lap to win. Can the Ethiopians make a breakthrough in this event?

    And now we have a Brit in the final for the first time in 26 years!

    Yeah, Kipruto's form is still really hard to assess, but he looked good in the heats.

    I wouldnt be surprised if Kipruto got on the podium, even gold honestly.

    I wanna see if El B can hold off Kigen and the Ethi's.
    I would venture that given the conditions, the two 50Ws were not generating a lot of heat (bork, bork).

    I've never seen it in a meeting other than those.
    After they've gone a few steps I don't think the starter actually has any authority to stop the race.
