Eighth to cross the line i believe will be Barnabus Kiptum, 32yo and ranked 69. His PB was last year in Buenos Aries when second behind Emmanuel Saina in 2.09.19. He was smashed by Saina, who i believe is the 18th best marathoner at this time, with withering 5K bursts of 14.09 between 25 and 30k, then 14.12 for the next 5. That broke him by 3.58 at the end and Kipserem by more. Barnabus won Hong Kong just this last Feb in a similar time.
Equal leader heading for 2+ min off pb if he hangs on the other two. There is no Saina here.
