Championship racing doesn't have rabbits in them so the fastest time trial racer doesn't always win a tactical race. I have seen time and time again where a favorite like Morceli in 92' be too conservative with his pace and an off the pace guy destroys the favorite. Twice Jakob has been burned by off the pace guys because his pace setting was too slow to kill the kick of the better kickers.Ingebrigtsen ran a tactical race that he normally does not run and he made a huge mistake in doing so....Kerr full value for first as was the 3rd place kid from Norway....3 whites...1/2/3 Blacks must be going about bat shyte crazy about now Add that to the fact The Viking won going away....
