I'm trying to figure out what your point with all of this is. All I was saying in my first post was that other factors besides heat - no one to run with in the end, and wind in the final stages didn't help his cause. Even if you want to claim there was a tailwind in the final kilometers or wherever, he definitely had to face some in the kilometers leading up to that, which probably contributed to his last few kilometers being slowest even though he had a marginal tailwind (since he had to push harder to keep the pace going). All I am saying is that the wind didn't help. If you want to take me to task that I said "tailwind" writing in a hurry, fine, I'll admit I was wrong on that (for certain sections of the course). But saying he didn't have issues with wind in the last 10k given the map and your wind data, and on top of what Geb himself said, is a little farfetched.
I think some of our miscommunication is how we are defining "final kilometers" - I am taking this to mean the last quarter or so of the race, you take it to mean the last 5k or so. So the analysis will be slightly different given those sections of the race.
