RE: Wait, why is Kirui not the favorite?
Well, he's not American born so that really works against you on this website. Obvious there is an American + white bias on here.
There are something like 16 guys with faster PRs than Rupp on the men's side. Yes, his PR is soft and a fast time is out for tomorrow which helps his case but Kirui is the favorite. Tola, Berhanu, Desisa, and Kigen should all be in the mix. It'll be interesting if they're all still there late in the race.
Much more likely to see an American woman win. 4 of the best in America going up against 4-6 solid international athletes. Kiplagat has to be the favorite but the percent odds are a lot better in this race.
