incredible run & commentator shocked as he'd never seen a "tactical" 3'30 on last lap
the wind was brutal at +4.8 for race immediately after
analysing run :
- lotta wide running on bends, i estimate ~ 13m !!! & not too much quality drafting which solidifies that
that alone brings his 3'30.77 to 3'30.77 * (1500/1513) = 3'28.95 !
- then brutal wind of +4.8 for race which musta cost 2+s for the race -> 3'26.95 !
- then we have uneven pace with jog to bell in 2'36.7 ( running clock 0.2s quick ) with 54s last lap !!
even more incredibly, most of that was done with that shocking kick from 1200 - 1300 which i get an estimate of ~ 12.6 which was probably into a ~ 4.8 wind !!!
adjusting for wind, that 100m where he blew field away was probably in 0 wind ~ 12.2/12.3 which is still long way behind Ryun's 11.6 on chewed up dirt in dusseldorf but it gives you an idea of how rare such kicks that far out are !!!
evening out the pace probably worth 1.5s ( you have to estimate more than from physics with slow unenforced pace such as jog to the bell/1200 as in this case ) for even paced race
i think he is in
~ 3'25.4 / 3'25.5 !!!
guys like Kwemoi have talked about breaking the WR ( former is in shape to do so, the latter isn't )
it coud actually be that there are 2 Kenyans currently in shape to break 1500 WR & neither is called Asbel !!!
