@LMontenebro Manzano outkicking Lagat was a surprise but the most impressive performance was Symmonds' 1:44.0 split.

Lagat ran a quick 57.0 on the first lap to extend his lead slightly over Manzano. A 60.0 on the next lap let Manzano bridge the gap and around the next turn it was only a matter of when Manzano would catch Lagat. It happened on the backstretch, and they started to settle in for the final kick. The 3rd 400 was a 61.8 and that let Ethiopia's Aman Mote catch up as well, as Lagat, Manzano, and Mote were together at the bell. Mote had been way, way back at the handoff - in 5th place, 5.7 seconds behind Lagat. Mote split 54.4 for the first 400 and then gradually closed the gap after that.
