No discredit to the Brits who beat him but really this was abysmal. After all the prerace buildup to the great man and all his success, he shows up and doesn't even race. If he is in his base phase for the summer fair enough but he would still have been good enough to mix it up front. Comfortably. And Kipruto was no better. The fact that they ran so close to each other all race was even more bizarre.
Kudos to Asbel for saying screw that I'm here to race. And Kipchoge, at least he made an honest attempt.
Boo to KB. Your aura is diminishing.
