Predictions for this upcoming years world championships? Here are my predictions for the 8 and 1500
Amos has had bad luck previously but has been getting better and better and is looking poised to do something special this year. He almost set a pr last year in 1:42 flat and in the right race can beat anyone. Korir is a terrible tactician, especially in championship races. Bosse is a consistent racer - he is technically the reigning world champion and will be someone to watch out for (especially if he can actually outlast have a decent kick the last 100). Brazier looked as good as ever last year. If put in a relatively fast race he can surprise and come away with a medal.
Cheruiyot and Manangoi will probably go out fast as they usually do, making it hard for a surprise victor in this race. Manangoi has not been looking good this past year and I suspect that he will probably suffer the most over the last 200 meters, making him a target to be passed. O'hare does really well domestically and in the right situation has one of the best kicks in Europe. I think that he can be the one to catch Manangoi and secure his long awaited medal. Honestly, I don't think Centrowitz will create that much fuss this year. Even if he is healthy I can, at best, see him sneak onto the podium but even that is a stretch considering what he did over the past 2 years.
