    Well, halfway into the race, the top 4 are on track, but with Kipchirchir and Lomong ahead of Korir and Erassa.

    If the lap times on the usatf site are to be believed, (https://results.usatf.org), Lomong and Kipchirchir were somewhat together with a lap to go, and Lomong ran a 55.6 final lap while Kipchirchir ran 72.5. Korir and Erassa were together, 22 seconds back, and while Korir ran a 63.9 final lap, Erassa ran 82.5 (!) and finished 5th. Wow!

    Erassa and Korir were neck and neck with about 250 meters left. The instant Korir charged past Erassa, Erassa essentially quit. Too bad, since the real excitement was becoming that race for third and the final spot on the team.

    Lomong is also entered in both the 1500 and 5000 and he told the media after his late night 10,000 win that still plans to be on the line for the 1500 prelims on Friday.

    I guess both Erassa and Kipchirchir essentially quit? Definitely a bizarre last lap.

    I am interested in his range of PBs:
    1:45.58
    3:32.20
    13:07.95
    27:30.06

    On letsrun's followup, Webb's and Aouita's range of PBs are mentioned, and I am wondering if there are other comparables that anyone can think of.

    I am also interested in his chronological range, in this: the 800 PB is 2008, and of course the 10,000 PB just now. That is impressive, too.
