Race underway... pace looks more honest than the ridiculously slow 5000M in Osaka last year... 63 sec last lap
Why is Kenny Leading?
Kenenisa is not playing, he is taking it to the field pushing the pace himself... he wants an honest race which is to his favor.
Kenenisa took off and it looks Tariku and Abraham already look done... weather effect again on the new arrivals???
Kenenisa looks like a sitting duck.
any streaming links?
Legat is gone.. now let's see if Kenenisa kills the Kenyans..
Amazing gold OR!
BRILLIANT RACING!!!!!!! Olympic Record 12:57.8 for Kenenisa and HTIRD GOLD for KB!!!
Nice team job. Kenenisa had a huge sprint in him. He did not shake off the Kenyans till late. Looked like the Kenyan would be able to hang on. But the sprint at the end was amazing.
This is the perfect tactical race by Kenenisa and the Ethiopian team. I hope the women will learn from this. Brilliant! 53 sec last lap. The fast pace took out Lagat early and then Soi. Aw. the way he destroyed the field makes up for some of the frustration with the earlier race. Enjoyed it:)
Kenenisa just interviewed on ETV: he says he decided not to make the mistake of the past by hanging with the pack for too long and decided to use his full talent today... WHAT PERFECTION!
