Anyways, IF they were to race in a 10,000m next year. What strategy could Bekele use? He couldn't just wait till last lap as Mo would have the edge in kicking these days. Its doubtful that in a WC the pace would be that of 26:40 or something and Bekele wouldn't lead the entire thing himself. So what could his strategy be?
I would think it would be similar to the strategy in his 2008 5,000m or the 2013 great north run where he picks it up the last ~2km and still has enough of a kick to hold off farah who should be tired at that point
