Men's 5,000 M Final

Two defeats by Hicham El Guerrouge have thought Kenenisa Bekele what he needed to know in this race. He did not fool around. He made the field run an honest 5,000. Bernard Lagat couldn't keep up with the pace and finished a distant 9th.

Kenenisa Bekele is not known for being a great tactical racer. He usually just out muscles the field. He may just have acquired that lost art by running an excellent disciplined race.


Two keys to the victory were:

- The Ethiopians pushed the pace early and kept increasing the pace winnowing the field down.

- Kenenisa accelerated with 400 to go rather than later in the last lap as he normally does. This took the sprint out of Soi.

Lot's of kudos to Tariku Bekele and Abreham Cherkos who did the early work. Despite the pacing work, Abreham Cherkos finished 5th. The future is bright for this budding 19 year-old.

good analysis. I agree.

I do not think Abraham is destined to greatness, however. I think he will be a descent runner but not great. No kick!

Going forward, I think the women are in better shape. Sule Utura and may be Genzebe will develop into dominant runners. I have given up on Gelete. She obviously has the talent but she is too damn inconsistent and not saavy tactically. She needs to change something! Clearly she is wasting her talent.
