Yep, I was going to say that too. If you put the 1:43/3:46 Webb at 1200, he would hand off in the lead. Wariner or Merritt runs 43-mid and puts 1.5 seconds on Kenya's guy. Symmonds loses a little to the Kenyan but at worst hands off tied for the lead. Then we let Lagat do his thing.
Yeah, because Webb always finishes first in international races when there isn't a rabit and Symmonds has totally proven he can run fast and isn't just going to wait until the last 125m to kick past everyone...
I think Khadevus(sp?) Robinson would definitely be a better choice for the 800m leg because he's used to just going out and running in front on his own.
