Does anyone else consider these athletes to be in the right place at the right time?
Meb as a silver medalist in the marathon has never run another performance in the marathon that compares. After that performance he was never able to put it all together to WIN in any international field.
Meyer, very similarly was the last American Male to win Boston in 2:09:00 and never came close to that marathon performance again.
Is the marathon such a crap shoot that you never can tell what is going to happen? or are they both just glorified (because it happened on a huge stage) one hit wonders?
Or is there no such thing as one hit wonders? If so, how do we explain a Trent Briney?
