He most definitely should have medalled. He was the 2nd best guy in the race.
I don't think I've ever seen a distance race in my entire life where a distance runner has stayed boxed for the final 100.
I am glad it opened up for him. I'd hate to have him lose and then peopel say he only lost because he got boxed.
BUt it is a reminder for all young distance runners. DON"T EVER LEAVE LANE 1 if you are leading. NEVER.
It opened up too late. Kjelcha sacrificed himself in the end setting it up perfectly for Edris and Chelimo blocked in Farah.
