RE: RUDISHA 1:41.33

no

all the long view shows before cutting to som/rudy & after is that som is outside of him ( perhaps even into lane 2 )

that offers no drafting

not directly 2m ahead


which guys going for WR runs don't normally get on the 2nd lap


no

even in kip's zurich race, by 43s he was getting no drafting as he'd gone out to lane 2, with "billy" in lane 1

we have no idea of bell to ~ 450m as camera went to some bandanas

next shot gives kip leading with "billy" out in lane 2

this is not proper drafting from 150 - 400 ( specifically 350 - 400 )

nor may have been better 400 - 450


Rudisha's splits looked like 24.0, 49.2, 1:14.28. So, 24.0, 25.2, 25.1! 27.0
Pretty similar to last year.


i doubt he is in last year's shape

too much lost training from injury with absentsia early season
