KIPCHOGE said in his interview afterwards on the BBC, he knew he had the 30km record and HE himself slowed down between 30-40km. Not the fault of there not being a pace car, mis-informed, not told soon enough ect. as speculated above.

The guy knew he was on record pace and just missed it. He got his job done, which was to defend his title. It just goes to show when he makes the record his aim, he will undoubtedly kill it!


Who knows, maybe today was his chance, like Berlin 2012 was G. Mutai's chance before there was a problem with the time on the pace car and they slowed, it never came back...

As for Kimetto, well at least he finished this time, hope he was bluffing when he said pre-race that he was in Berlin 2014 shape...

The Olympic marathon should be a good race for once with Kipchoge, Biwott and hopefully Bekele. Throw in Abera (Dubai + Hamburg) and Kipserem (Rotterdam) instead of Kipsang.
