The two of you guys are as dumb as sh*t. Farah didn't win because this was cross country and he is not or has not ever been a cross country runner, it does not suit him and even less in the mud.
A faster pace will affect anyone's kick but no one out there can even run fast enough to blow him out enough. Sh*t, I could burn off Bekele if I was the form to run 26 flat but doing it is a different story. If you don't think a guy who ran 3:28 and 59 mid so close together can come close to running 26:30 and low 12:40's and still kick a 54/55 last lap, you are a complete moron! Who else can run that fast right now nevermind kick a last lap of under 55 off that pace? No one can and will.
Even in the Pre Classic with Farah sharing the lead and work with Tanui to try and run fast and Kamworor sitting in doing nothing, Farah demolished them over the last lap off a world lead time. Unless their is a guy hiding out there with 26:30 or 12:40 fitness or someone respected enough to bluff it but sacrifice their own chances (which won't happen as anyone who could pull off that bluff would have big medal chances), Farah will not be beat in a fast race because he will still outkick them all because he is just faster than them in every situation, he is in a different on the track and is one of the all time greats.
