It has been said many times that races are decided not by the top runners, but the next tier. The number 4 or number 5 runner who passed ten in the last hundred meters to lower his own team's score, or the number 6 or number 7 runner who can add to their opponent's score. And then there is the runner who steps up to fill in missing shoes when the team needs them. Quality depth is just as important as quality talent.
