Subject: RE: SAMMY'S PERFORMANCE - MORE IMPRESSIVE THAN BEIJING?
At first I did think Wanjiru would be broken; however, after the 3rd mini break and Wanjiru fought back the 3rd time and then he ran on his Kebede's shoulder.
After that I thought Wanjiru was trying to break Kebede because he saw everytime he went to front Kebede would retake the lead briefly by another surge. With less than 2 minutes to go Wanjiru did a strong but very brief 4th surge in which Kebede responded but he didn't look so good as his right arm had now begun a very noticeable circular motion.
You also noticed that from 22-25 mile Wanjiru kept looking back but once they reached mile 25 he never looked back again for the other Ethiopian. It appeared to me that Wanjiru formulated that tactic with one mile to go and it worked perfectly!
WHAT DID KEBEDE DO WRONG? For some reason he had to retake the lead as soon as Wanjiru got a couple strides ahead of him and with those 4-5 surges to retake he actually broke himself. At the 25 mile mark I think Wanjiru knew how much he had left and kept inching ahead because he saw Kebede's form worsening and Kebede couldn't hold his surges for long. Wanjiru wanted Kebede to keep surging that last mile because Wanjiru knew he had one last actually finish push that those surges was hurting Kebede more than Wanjiru.
