in London, Mutai's final 12km were covered in 35:20!
So, 2:54/km and @ 2:02 marathon pace!! The ability to surge like that - he did the 5k's from 30-35km in 14.26 and the next 5 in 14.19, nuts!
Think this was the point he ran away from Lel, he initially was gesturing for Lel to run side by side instead of clipping his heels but no way could Lel come through & eventually faded.
Pretty impressive stuff on a fair course.....
Berlin should be special if these guys are all running as they perhaps have raised the 'whats achievable' bar.
