FA Final Preview
The United States starts very fast, as it did last summer in Athens, but again they must deal with Romania which is expected to close steadily in the middle 1000 and take the lead away for the gold in the last 500. Don't count the Netherlands out for either the silver or the gold if the early leaders burn each other out in the early going.
Abbreviations: GER is Germany.  GBR is Great Britain.  ROM is Romania.  NED is Netherlands.  USA is United States.  AUS is Australia.
