Knowing that the first lap that´s longer Bekele did from 2nd lap to the 5th lap a 23sec range average (5:38 to 5:51), being the 4th and 5th laps the fast ones. Bekele did 11sec range (6:05 - 5:54) being the last lap the fast one ands Ritz did 1min 03sec range, being the last ones the slower ones ! Now, the splits shows that Ritz did start faster than he might have done. But that´s the inexperience and the mistake that´s to feel that the first laps he were able to follow the leading group.
When i say from the second lap to the 5th lap you shall read from the 2nd lap to the 6th lap of course.
