No chance. Geb is smarter than that. As great as he is, he knows he can't beat Bekele. And Geb won't run for silver. To win 2 10K golds and a marathon gold would make him truly unique as an Olympian.
Geb will run the Olympic marathon. There's absolutely nothing else for him to accomplish except this one thing.
