It's not like Ronald Kwemoi is new and came out of nowhere. He ran 3:28 as a junior.
Kwemoi looked excellent. If he can keep the same form for Rio and put together another strong tactical race, he should contend for gold.
Kiprop looked great and then... not great. Perhaps the coaching issues got to him this week and/or he wasn't quite in form to go out that fast. And the second rabbit really bonked it - I'm sure that did affect his race, although I would imagine Kiprop at 100% wouldn't have been too fazed by it.
It's a shame the times haven't lived up to the hype so far, but hey, there's a reason why those times are the world records. Maybe Semenya will blast a quick one...
