Calm Down Rio204
I seem to remember that in my youth the Men's Marathon's finish signified the start of the closing ceremonies. That could just be a hazy memory of youth, but it is one of the very last events of the Summer Olympics. With the pace a little slower than was expected for the early kilometers, the pack was still rather large ten kilometers in. On the front of the crowd, Eluid Kipchoge (Kenya) seemed to be gesturing for L.Berhanu (Ethiopia) and Galen Rupp (USA) to slow it down. Given the Kenyans prowess in this event, one would think he would want the pace to be as high as possible.
