Al Trautwig announced on broadcast that Edna Kiplagat ran 4:50 for the uphill 20th mile. The split in the press room was given as 5:01. I'm inclined to believe the latter. Most men would have trouble running that mile in 4:50.
But what is not in doubt is Kiplagat is destroying the field right now. Her lead is 12 seconds at last count and growing. Hasay in 3rd.
That split had to be suicide. So glad Hasay didn't go with. Not that she physically would be able to, but still.
