    I'm voting Gebrihwet. He will not make the same mistake in Zürich by allowing Cheptegai to run away.

    Assuming he has counted the number of laps correctly!

    Lomong seeded fourth and ahead of Kipruto and Barega is . . . odd.

    Based on the 5k the Ethiopians look like they have their act together this year. They aren't going to let Cheptegei gap them like they did in their trials race, where their qualifying objective was at odds with the "win the race" objective. I still think Kejelcha is the best of all of them, and an in-form Gebrhiwet should also take the measure of Cheptegei in a sprint. Of course, maybe we'll see one for the ages where Chep takes them into sub-26:40 territory to bleed them out.

    Lomong is in the shape of his life...he could upset with a medal. A recent 13:00+ 5000m and strong finishing speed indicate that he will be in the fight for the podium.

    I don't think Barega is running the 10000m. Ethiopian Federation does not allow anyone to double, which is why Gebrhiwet was removed from the startlist. I don't know who the fourth runner is though.

    Cheptegei just outkicked Kejelcha.

    Not sure if that should count as a surprise or not. On the one hand, Cheptegei was the favorite and we all saw in 2017 that he has a good kick. On the other hand... it still feels like Cheptegei outkicking Kejelcha should count as a surprise.

    Around 4:06 last 1600. Amazing race from Cheptegei. Thought he might have left it too late, but he refused to be passed in last 300.
