Huh? Katir won’t be in the race. Tim maybe not as well. McSweyn can’t kick, Marcin, Tefera and Simotwo looked decent but 3:30 in a drag race isn’t that scary…if any of those guys kicked to a 3:29 it’s different. Bleh from Edwards and Filip. This race was not bad news for the Americans besides Tim’s potential presence.
3:30 isn't that scary...! It should be. Cheruiyot will be selected off the back of this result and he'll turn the final into precisely this sort of honest race. The sit and kick runners are doomed. The Olympics will be a race for real men, not joggers with with a nice burst of pace
