    I'll guess she drops this one.

    Agree. Though one fewer race involved in a 10-5 double, she is a big favorite in the 1500.

    yeah, but the 5 adds 10K of racing, the 1500 only adds 4500.....

    Which agrees with what Atticus and catson said.

    IMO, if Hassan wins the 10k, she runs the 5k. If she loses the 10k, she runs the 1500.

    Current form means nothing. Hassan would be a fool to challenge Kipyegon instead of Obiri and the extremely vulnerable lot in the 5000.

    Do you really want to rely on current form down the stretch against Faith Kipyegon? Oh sure...she'll just fade away. After all, she hasn't run frequently lately.

    This sets up perfectly for Hassan. With Ayana never healthy and gone from the 10,000 she can win that race without exerting nearly as much energy as a matchup against Ayana would have required. Then she can focus on beatable stiffs like Obiri in the 5000 instead of someone truly elite and who very seldom loses a major final in Faith Kipyegon.

    Are Kipyegon and Obiri fully ready?

    I fancy Hassan for the 1500/10k double, which also conveniently allows her training partner KK to go for the 5k, her better event.

    Top 4 in the first heat running much harder than they needed to, given they were way ahead of everyone else. A few big PBs, including Schweizer, Buscomb and Tanaka.
