Daisuke Matsunaga lead the rest with no one else seemingly wanting to strike early.
By 6km, nothing had changed, Bosworth is still in command coming through in 24:12, but with only a 2 second lead over Gathimba in 2nd.
Now in 5th Japan's Daisuke Matsunaga trys to keep the Canadian duo of Benjamin Thorne (3rd) and Inaki Gomez(4th) in sight.
Meanwhile, the rest of the pack continued to watch from behind.
By the 7th lap it looked like Bosworth would walk away with Olympic gold. He looked smooth and relaxed.
Matsunaga continued to persue.
Dane Bird-Smith started to show signs that he wanted to take control of the pack.
