Who among the present top marathoners would likely have replaced a London 5 or 10K medallist but for the shift in distance? Put otherwise, who among the present crop of top marathoners could have presented a tougher challenge to the medallists than the London 4th place finishers, Lagat and K. Bekele? None is my guess.

The only name I can think of period is a healthy Ibrahim Jeilan, and he's not a marathoner. His last lap in Daegu makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up every time I watch it.
