LIVESTREAMING WORLDWIDE: HERE

It should be a very fast race with Leonard Komon in men clearly decided to attempt WR in Half after being the owner of 10k and 15k.Could he do it??Not so easy but he should be very near:a fast course and two pacers very good as Josephat Bett and Vincent Rono.Against him Philemon Limo and quite unknown Kenneth Kipkemoi at second half after a debut in 59'11.We must also ask if Komon will be completely recovered from recent injury.
Easier in women to have fast time...Lydia Cheromei and ethiopian Habtamu with a guy as Martin Toroitich as pacer:something very important will come from the ladies.
Which times??...men under 60' surely all the podium!!!..For the two women a time under 67'30 or better more under 67'!!
