Eliud, Kelvin Kiptum might soon get your WR and achieve GOAT status. Dude was sprinting all out at the finish. Two marathons back to back in the 2:01s!!

Closing splits for Hassan?

Anyone get the last 400 split? I had the last 600 if the BBC clock on the screen was right in 1:50 which is 73.33 pace.

I timed the last 385 yards (352 meters) in 64.1 seconds) which is 72.8 400 pace.

Hassan is incredible

I don't know how the hell Hassan did that. She had to train for the last month during Ramadan -- no fluids during the day barring a medical emergency. She stopped twice to strech her quad during mile 12, got dropped by 11 seconds at halfway, almost missed her bottle at 40k and still made it look easy in the home straight. One of the most remarkable races I've ever seen. --JG

We are going to hit 1 mile to go with 5 women in the lead pack including Sifan Hassan. We'll see if the person with the most 'speed' wins or not. I've always said, "it's the person with the most speed left, not the most speed that wins." We'll see if that's true.

Kiptum getting antsy

Kelvin Kiptum keeps surging ahead of the pacers at the drinks stations. At 25k, he went in front again and the pacer had to signal for him to cool it. He closed in 60:15 in Valencia for his second half, could we something special again today?

Women's race getting exciting

Sifan Hassan, who was 12 seconds back at 20k, was gaining on women's leaders and just 3 seconds back at 30k. Looked to be an incredible story, until Peres Jepchirchir decided to throw in a surge. Women's lead pack down to 4 now -- Jepchirchir, Yalemzerf, Megertu, and Sheila Chepkirui.
