No Farah in the 5K though. Weird that the guy tied atop the DL standings wouldn't run the final ... instead he is running basically an exhibition half-marathon two days later (Stanley Biwott is the only proven top-tier half guy in the field).
Would have been nice to see him against all the top names, possibly in a faster race too, as opposed to the jog fest we got at Worlds.
Great for the sport.
I guess the appearance fee he is getting for the Great North Run is more than the same for Brussels plus the DL jackpot.
I'm sorry, but this is a thing that annoys me about Farah ... how many years (including champ years) do you think Bekele or Geb ran only one 5K on the circuit?
I'd think the best 5K guy in the world right now would race the distance more often (also the best 10K guy, but they basically don't have those anymore, so can't fault him if he wasn't to run many of those).
