    Kosgei' 5km splits, after the opening 15:28 , are (I think) - 16:00, 15:58, 16:01, 16:06. Still slightly over a minute ahead of WR pace at 25km.

    Jordan Hasay had a 5km split of 22:20. Not seeing anything further, so must be DNF.

    Kosgei ran her 2nd & 3rd 5kms at about 16 min each, so was on 2:13:25 pace at 15km.
