Seriously. 20 runners in the race. Its a heat so likely it will be slow with runners bunched up and frantically trying to get good positioning for the final couple laps. Its a recipe for an ugly race. Unless perhaps some runners are not at an elite level and will be left behind early in the race.
The semifinals for the 5000 will be starting here in about an hour and a half. How does everybody think they'll play out? If the USA can get 3 guys to the final it would be a miracle, but Lagat should make it and Rupp ha an 80% chance I would say.
