2nd and 3rd in the 5
GB already has taken over from Kenya (7th in the 10 and 4th in the 5)
I have never seen a guy look so fluid in the final 100 of a 5k. Kiplimo looked almost like a sprinter, no strain on his face at all. An earlier start to his tack season next year and he's a gold medal contender in Budapest
Kenya is doing better than whatever your country is ;)
KENYA IS FINISHED
I'll look elsewhere, but this link is no good.
last lap starts at ~11:20
I have counted 57 sec closing time.
Jacob Kiplimo. Marathon WR. Collision course.
Is there anyone who hasn’t debuted in the marathon with a higher ceiling? Half WR. Track success. Eliud level running economy.
Kiplimo looked pretty unbeatable on the day. Kimeli ran the perfect race… he even saved up his energy properly and had a surge in response to Kiplimo’s stretch run. It is hard to run better from the front than to squeeze down the last lap of 54.0 with 14.6/13.6/13.0/12.8. But Kiplimo ran an unearthly 12.5 for a guy who is a stud up to the half marathon. Jakob might have the only tactic to solve this in running the penultimate lap harder. But we’ve seen Kiplimo kick by him too. You have to shake him early and hope he’s not in full shape yet.
Well, Jakob ran a faster last lap and a much faster penultimate lap in Eugene.
Let´s hope all the top runners, including Jacob and Jakob, participate in the DL final in the 5000m next month.
