The 1500 was amazing. Kiprop took his normal spot in 3rd/4th behind the rabbits.
But he let them gap the field after the first lap and he just faded to way way back. Looked like he was just bagging it as basically the whole field came by.
Then in the last 150 he seemingly looked up and thought "Hey these guys arent that far ahead. Came from maybe 6th or 7th with 100 left and won it." i need to see a race replay of that one and just watch him.
To add to the impressive number of strange but most of the time winning races by him. Looks like he is playing.
And I agree with Michel Boeting "Seems he was just testing himself for eventual trouble in future races. Confidence booster this."
