I look forward to seeing Bekele get the world record in Berlin. I also hope Tadese has a good race and manages a decent PB. He deserves it. He has the potential to get silver here. Look at his 10ks to half mary.
Bekele is done. He is more likely to DNF than get the WR.
I want to see Kipsang do well, though. If he can finish, then he could POSSIBLY challenge Kipchoge.
At this point Bekele would be fortunate to be invited. And he won't be doing himself any favours going to Berlin to be defeated, yet again, and irritate Kipchoge by arguing about the pace. It's been years since he last won and he's in dire need of a win. I think he should try a marathon he can win to avoid becoming Dennis Kimetto who just goes around collecting appearance fees.
