No chance of the Women's record going unless Dibaba has one of the biggest shocks of all time up her sleeve.
The better bet would be the mens with this being the best ever field assembled, but traditionally the course is a minute or so slower than the fastest courses so a WR would still be a surprise, that saying Kipsang, Makau and Geoffrey Mutai in the same race and all fresh this year could push someone to a record.
"the most people competing in an event DF3 couldnt get a place in"
that one will be smashed.
Will Mo Farrah pacing the first half make much of a difference to the mens' times?
In theory I could train for a 600 metre race and shoot off the Champs start like a blue-arsed fly, and be the first person ever to lead the race whilst running past their own house (probably).
Good luck with that phil. A mate of mine tried it a few years ago, he was off like a rocket but the pacemakers just wouldn't let him past. He didn't have the added incentive of running home though. He looked good on the telly.
