    Is anyone watching? Legese floored the pedal at 30K with Bekele falling back. They're closing in on 40K and Bekele is stalking Legese, with the WR in sight!

    Three-time winner Gladys Cherono dropped out at 33K. The women are going at just under 2:23 pace.

    Bekele trying to hold sub-2:02 pace after 40K. 11 seconds behind WR pace. And he's checking his watch. :-)

    If you had to ask me, I'd say Kipchoge could have a problem. Bekele was off the pace and done. Legese put his foot on the pedal, but he cracked. And the Bekele who once ran 13:52+12:57 on the track showed up, scaring a WR that no one was supposed to come thisclose to.

    If Bekele runs like that in Tokyo, it could be a very long final 10K for Kipchoge.
