Dawit waiting for his moment in the sun, and when it came, he had plenty of time to savour it. He had finished one second behind his colleague Dadi Yami in Dubai, and that one second seemed to convince everyone that Yami was the big favourite here. He certainly played that role throughout the first half of the race, ignoring the pacemakers and going to the front himself. But Dawit, who had sat quietly through press conferences while Yami was lionised by press and TV alike, surged silently to his colleague's shoulder at 30k, and then proceeded to run 29.07 for the next 10k, and leave Yami in the dust. Yami nonetheless underlined his good run in Dubai (2.05.41) by finishing second, in 2.07.01, and Kenyan Augustine Ronoh(sic) was third, in 2.07.23.
