Korir said afterwards in his come from behind victory, “So let me go at a consistent pace and let me see if I can catch up with them.”

I saw the guys in front of me and I thought, ‘Let me get fifth.’ Then I passed the guy in fourth and I thought wow, ‘I could get fourth.’ When I saw the guy in front of him, I thought, ‘Wow, I could get on the podium.'”
