The heat and distance starting taking their toll.
Michta in route to a season's best.
While I was heading back into the stadium the race broke with the two Russians taking a commanding lead.
By the time they were headed into the stadium it was all done. The race between the greats was all but decided as Elana Lashmanova pulled ahead of Anisya Kirdyapkina.
All that was left was for Lasmanova to cruise through the final lap+. However, when Lasmanova got to the bell lap she got confused. She looked to her left.
The she looked to her right. I guess she was looking for the tape to break, but it was on the inside of the track. The problem, at least for her was, she almost came to a stop. This allowed Kirdyapkina to make up ground.

Kiryapkina was not about to give up and chased after her.
