It's looking like a very strong year. The Americans absolutely have their hands full if they want to win. We have:

-Mosop
-Gebre Gebremariam
-Markos Geneti, one of the 2:04 Ethiopians from Dubai
-Cheruiyot the younger, the guy won it in 2:05:50 (which some people debated about whether it was the beset performance ever)
-Wesley Korir, Chicago champ who is still a Kenyan citizen
-Micah Kogo, 59:07 guy debuting...

Lots of other top Americans, Canada/Australia/South Sudan represented too.
