Kenya’s Moses Mosop tried bravely to catch the two Ethiopians in the final kilometers, but finished third in 2:05:02. His compatriot Peter Cheruiyot Kirui, another pre-race favorite, dropped out of the race.

Down the finish order, Dutchman Koen Raymaekers finished sixth in 2:10:35, and Canadian Dylan Wykes finished seventh in 2:10:47.  Both men qualified for their nation’s Olympic teams with those marks, which were both personal bests. Wykes became the second fastest Canadian of all time behind Jerome Drayton.
