I hope a new champion is crowned in the 10 this year. Someone who takes it to Farah...yet the same as usual will probably happen. There will be a lot of talk about how the Kenyans will use team tactics, but no one will sacrifice themselves.
The same thing doesn't happen.
Farah just wins.
Last year's 10k was 27:05, which was the second fastest Olympic 10k ever and just off the Olympic record of 27:01. The fact of the matter is, on any given day, if anyone in the race were to run 26:30, it would be Mo.... he's the best in a fast or slow race.
Easy there, fanboy. We have evidence that Mo can be the best in a 27:05 race, and we have evidence that he can run 26:40-high, but NO evidence that he can run 26:30 flat.
