More Track and Field Predictions

Tonight is the men's 5000 meter finals. I'm picking Bernard Lagat to win and Matt Tegenkamp to place second. Third place seems wide open to me. I'm tempted to pick the baby-faced Galen Rupp for third, but I'll be cheering for local boy Matt Gabrielson to surprise a bunch of people and pull off a spot on the team.

Lagat and Tegenkamp took first and second as I predicted, while Ian Dobson earned the third spot, less than a second behind Tegenkamp. Rupp didn't start, and Gabrielson came in a very respectable eighth.
