    And I thought that Bekele was finished at 37!

    Agreed.

    ...'Interestingly, Bekele was faster than Kipchoge at 40km. By only 2 seconds - 1:55:30 for Bekele vs 1:55:32 for Kipchoge. But Kipchoge’s final 2.2km were 4 seconds faster than Bekele's today.'

    He had very consistent splits from 25 to 40 (14:26-14:20-14:16), although it might have looked like he had a bad patch and then recovered to take the lead.

    It was Legese who made a big surge and then faded (14:23-14:09-14:58).

    It changes what I said before....Bekele was focused like a laser beam the last 20 kilometers....it was Kipchoge who wandered off....and then surged towards the end.
