Also, Souleiman clipped RK when they went to follow Kiprop. That took one contender out and Souleiman could have been DQ'd.

I rewatched the race. I saw a crucial moment that I'm kind of surprised nobody is talking about. Around 450-500M to go Soulieman briefly passes Centro and it looked like he had the inside rail to take for himself. But Centro is able to surge by him on the inside to reclaim the lead just before the final lap. If Soulieman claimed the inside it could have totally changed the result. Its likely that Centro only gets bronze or Silver having to work his way to the outside to find a lane.
