That's what I was thinking. The pace was pretty similar to Stanford so we already know he can get away with that kind of surge at that speed, but since he's based in Japan he can't be that used to racing at altitude. Still a baller for trying a move like that against all those big boys, though, and I don't think anyone who was there doubts that he is a giant even in a field like that.
I don't have official results, but Peter Kirui won in 27:31 just ahead of Wilson Kiprop. They both make the WC team. '07 bronze medalist Martin Mathathi was 3rd so I imagine they'll put him on the team. Geoffrey Mutai was 4th and Paul Tanui 5th in about 27:44.
