      Thanks!  That was a great race

      It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

        Mekele?

        Dont call it a comeback

          Mekele?

           

          What race you watching Parklife?  We saw Farahv vs Mekele.

           

          Seriously, Farah made one of the great finishes ever.   To the untrained eye (mine) it looked like Bekele cut him off.  Still, Bekele responded and won the race.  Very, very exciting.


          Not dead. Yet.

            Thank you for posting that!   If Mo had started a few hundred feet earlier he might have won.

             

            Wow!

            How can we know our limits if we don't test them?


            Cry havoc!

              For once, epic is not an exaggeration.  That was really amazing.

                bekele, bekele don't know why i copied the typo and then made some of my own!! My heart was pounding watching it!

                  Bekele won it on the downhill about 1k from the finish. Mo just couldn't make up for the gap that Bekele opened up going down. It was a good day for close finishes http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZ9Z8RTuXv8.  Most interesting thing in the video is Allister stopping on the course to cheer on his brother.

                    Great race. I think I am most impressed by Geb.

                      I thought it looked like Bekele was blocking him as well, but I don't know what the etiquette/rules are at that level.  Great finish!

                        Geb has seen worse breaches of etiquette.

                          Definitely a highlight of the road racing season.

                            Judging from Mo's smile at the end, I don't think he considered Bekele's actions out of line.

                             

                            I'm impressed they could attack like that at the end.

                              Geb has seen worse breaches of etiquette.

                               

                              Why would that dude punch Geb?  Did Geb do something to him earlier in the race or was it just frustration?

                                I think that punch took a few tenths off Geb's time time, haha. It looked like it gave a little boost, even if that wasn't the intent.
