Can Kenya, Ethiopia and Uganda conspire to end Mo's dominance of the 10,000m

3.27am: 10,000m final

Great Britain's Mohammed 'Mo' Farah has done it a little too many times. That is, beating and humiliating Kenyans and Ethiopians for the last five years.

This has to end, so an article "Ethiopians ready for Operation Mo" by Elshadai Negash  in FloTrack indicates. The Ethiopians have a plan, the Kenyans are keeping their cards close to their chest, but it is the Ugandans who might just pounce if anyone makes an error in what is likely to be a tactical race.

Joshua Cheptegei's tasted victory before, at junior level, and the Ugandan former world champion will lead Uganda's assault in the 10,000m final. His best times are in the 5000m where he has the 6th best time of the year, but this race offers him a chance to plan his tactics ahead of his favourite race.

The Ethiopan's plans is simple. Ensure their runners have what it takes to sprint in the final 400m.

In the past few days, the focus, reports FloTrack, has been on speed work as the athletes take their turns through 4x400m, 2x1000m, and 4x800m repeats. Across the touchline, head coach Hussein Shebo patiently looked on and shouted out split times. 

"The focus on speed work reflects Ethiopia's growing ambition at ending Mohammed Farah's five-year dominance of major championship 5000m and 10000m running" FloTrack reported.

" In all, but one race in the last four major championships [Beijing'15, Moscow'13, London'11, Daegu'11], the Brit bode his time in the lead pack before out-powering his rivals in either the last 200m or 400m to clinch the victory."

"We are not just preparing for Mo Farah," FloTrack reports head coach Hussein Shebo as saying. Shebo is under pressure this year to return Ethiopia back to the glory days of Kenenisa Bekele and Haile Gebrselassie. 

"In the 10,000m, there is the Kenyan half marathon champion [Geoffrey Kamworor] who is a big threat. There are also a number of other strong guys in the 5,000m. We will not have easy races."
