I swear runners are some of the most hard headed athletes alive. Obviously the odds are very low and if the USA team doesn't think they can do it they surely won't, but from a physics standpoint it is absolutely possible to make up a 4 second gap if the faster runner is the rabbit the entire time.
Sure it's possible in theory, but not when the runner you're trying to catch is Asbel Kiprop.
The only way I could see US winning is if they somehow open up a really big gap, but I think Kiprop might even run down a US guy with a 4-6 second lead.
