At about 110m off the final corner I used to go just wide enough in lane one to make people have to go around
Which is a pointless waste of energy
He most definitely should have medalled. He was the 2nd best guy in the race.
I don't think I've ever seen a distance race in my entire life where a distance runner has stayed boxed for the final 100.
I am glad it opened up for him. I'd hate to have him lose and then peopel say he only lost because he got boxed.
BUt it is a reminder for all young distance runners. DON"T EVER LEAVE LANE 1 if you are leading. NEVER.
Agree but you don't have to be blocked the whole way to have it lose you the race.

Going onto the home stretch, Chelimo and 2 Ethiopians had Farah boxed in! Instead, the Ethiopian moves to lane 2 to try and block Chelimo, allowing Farah on the inside easily.
What the heck. Glad Farah didn't win, but he should NOT have medaled.
I saw that- All I could think is that sometimes when an athlete is tired he/she drifts.
I couldn't believe when he opened that up for Farah to go inside.
