I think I just saw Levins on the back of the pack
Tadesse is a mad man. gonna drop a 4:10 mile
drugged. clearly. and in cahoots with the Ethiopians none the less.
Is tadese wearing two different shoes?
How much did the Kenyans and Etheopians pay the Eritrians to pace?
Estrada thinks he's in the NCAA's...c'mon Diego!!
WHERE IS CAM LEVINS!?
IS HE READY TO DROP THE HAMMER???
45.XX LAST LAP FROM LEVINS?!
Levins sittin pretty in the back... i like his strat.
They are executing the race Ryan Hall style - even splits, oblivious to what is going on around them. This cerebral, western approach will receive its ultimate validation after Farah and Rupp finish 1 and 2, not necessarily in that order. Going forward, the Africans will stop with all of this surging and racing the competition and learn to pay attention to the clock!
Tadese says "The only good pace is suicide pace."
This is what I'm talking about! Push the pace. This is the Olympics!

Levins is just chilling
Bekele is going to wait until 5 laps to make a move. He is hoping by then there will be a gap between him and Farah and it will be too late to catch up. But Farah is smarter than that. He wont let thst gap happen.
Race is out quick first 200.
Bekele 30.4 at 200 to get ahead of field. 29 guys.
64.87 at 400 Mo Farah right behind Bekele
I'm surprised the other Ethiopians aren't being made to lead this.
73.1 2nd lap really slow
73.42 3rd lap this is really slow.
4:46 at 1600. super super slow
5:59.56 at 2000
Zersenay Tadese the world half marathon record holder has started pushing it.
I think the lap was only about 70 but he started halfway through. He strung it out.
2:10.6 last 800. So if it really was 70 that was close to 60. Anyone get the split before that?
Lap before that 61.9 (not 60)
Now 64.13 through 3200m. Really strung out.
Rupp is in 10th with a slight gap to 9th with Farah BEHIND him.
Rupp and Farah in 2nd group.
64.6 Tadese pushing still Now 1 long line no gap.
guy next to me is now praising mo Farah's strategy.
14:05 first half
Mo looks very comfortable.
Slowed for a lap. Tadesse back at it again.
Rupp is "the white shadow"
KB has total focus on Mo's back
and another commercial...freaking awesome nbc.
