Running Alone Rio206
The Kenyan Eluid Kipchoge had spent a lot of the early miles of the Olympic Marathon trying to organize the race to his liking. Oddly he was trying to slow the race down early on, only to leave everyone behind in the last couple of miles. The last two to hold onto his heals were Feyisa Lilesa (Ethiopia) and Galen Rupp (USA). But it was this view, the back of Kipchoge, that everyone who started the race got to see (or a least to see if figuratively). Naturally, Kipchote went on to claim the Gold Medal in the Men's Marathon.
