Kiplimo has problems tactically. In the 10,000 at Worlds this year he was pretty far back. He also probably should’ve been on the pace more. It feels like he’s as gifted as Cheptegei but not his equal in finding the best spot to win from.
This was a very strong run from Ebenyo but a disappointing one from Kandie. Kandie is just inconsistent it seems. Some awesome road 10Ks/Half marathons, a great Kenyan Trials win but then duds at Peachtree, here and numerous other races.
