Also cool thing about tomorrow, (even though it's apparently not as exciting since I made a thread about this last week that got no replies), is that there's another WR attempt going on on the roads.
Sammy Kitwara and Leonard Patrick Komon are chasing the 10K world record tomorrow (held by Micah Kogo at 27:01) at the ABN AMRO Utrecht Singel Loop race.
So if all goes well, tomorrow the Marathon WR will be in the mid to high 2:03's and the 10K WR will be in the 26's.

That's Christian Glatting. He's repsonsible for the pace in the first 8 or 9 kilometres. This will be close to an all out effort for him, as he's only a 28:40 10ker.
Women's lead pack hits 5k in a pedestrian 18:03.
Wow the english live feed is about a minute behind then
In the women's race, Kebede broke away from Bekele and Getaneh.
I don't expect we'll be seeing him on the coverage much but Masakazu Fujiwara is trying to run 2:06 today. Supposed to be a 1:03:15 first half and then if all goes well he'll take it down and shoot for the Japanese NR of 2:06:16.
Men 10k in 29:20 (8 runners in the pack + some pacers)
who are the commentators? both top notch, imo
