"A performance for the ages"

While a loss today didn’t please Farah, it was a good thing for the sport. Not only did fans get to witness a historic performance by Kamworor, they got to see some of its stars race outside of the Olympics. They also received some hope that Farah can be beaten this summer in Rio or at least challenged. Farah still deserves to be the favorite in both the 5,000 and 10,000, but given that he’s dominated the sport over the past five years, it makes things more interesting now that he has a loss on his record in a major race. The conditions and distance will be much different in Rio, so we can’t read too much into today’s results, but if Kamworor is stronger than he was in 2015 (which is certainly the case right now), he may be able to drop Farah in a 10,000, which is something we haven’t seen since 2011.
