Rasmus Henning is right at the front this time so will be surprised if he is not right up there in the last few 100m's. Am expecting a sprint for some of these medals.
One lap down and 10 or so of the fastest runners have a big break on the rest. The only guy missing for me is Peter Robertson. Oh well....
Henning in the front now. A bit early to go off the front so will be surprised if he can do it. Gomez and Rana will be there with Docherty I think. Unger and Gemmel are a threat also. Brownlee did a bit much work early on, I'm picking. Rana looks more like it and Gomez with him. Unreal, that is Gomez's strength.
Docherty and Gomez!!!!!! Lap 2 and they have sorted themselves out...well it is pretty early on. Rana is hurting as he leads and makes some surges, but he is draining some energy from the rest of the field as he does it.
It looks hot; Unger gave himself a good drenching with the aid station water. Brownlee is out but Unger could come back.
Last years race on the same course was a good predictor but Atkinson never fired this time.
Rana is dropping off but Frondeno and Whitfield are with the lead group also. No big surprises in this race and there were no surprises in the medals for the woman also. Only Gomez and Docherty left with these two with a lap to go.
