I thought it was a great race. It's great to see everyone on here and all of the commentators see him lose in a way they didn't expect.
He lost in a tactical race. As it was gong slow, the BBC people were like "this is stupid, they are giving him the race."
But in reality no one is good enough to outrun a 10k champ from the front unless there is some major team tactics. But outkicking a 34-year old who is fighting father time, was possible.
I think that 10k did hurt him. I never thought Farah would lose the 5k after the 10k. The 5k is where I didn't think he as vulnerable (unless he lost the 10k).
But what you see here is why Geb and those guys didn't do as many doubles. They had heats of the 10k. When you are worn out by the 10k, it's a lot harder in the 5k.
After it was over, the BBC was saying that the Ethiopians were using team tactics? Not at all. It was a jogfest and all out sprint. I didn' tsee any tactics but Paula said it was to "get the lead before the bell."I only think they got it because Farah was tired.
They did misjudge their kick a little bit. Edris ran 52.4 but it was 26.0 first 200, 26.4 last 200.
