Translated form German using google.

19:59 : AYANLEH Souleiman (Djibouti), winner A run 1500 meters (3:36,13 min): The race today was very good. I've been waiting for my chance and then they used. We have recently been very well trained in Ethiopia, with a strong group. I feel fit and I want to improve further. The next race I do in Stockholm over 1000 meters. There I want to attack the world record.

Uh huh.... so his training partner Makhloufi came out of the woodwork to win Olympic gold. His training partner wants to now double-gold in Moscow. NOW, Souleiman wants to take down a WR, after pulling out of the Olympics due to "injury."

Yea I'm not buying this

These guys have performed at a high level before.

Replace Makhloufi and Souleiman with Farah and Rupp and it's exactly the same.

Don't accuse because they have names you cannot pronounce.

You are kidding right?

Makhloufi and Souleiman didn't come from completely out of nowhere, but there is no comparison with Farah and Rupp who we have been following since they were youth. Souleiman who has never won a major competition at any level and to think you are going to be a world championship double medalists is crazy. Although, as crazy as this sounds, Makhloufi had never won a major competition either and also predicted he would be double Olympic gold medalists and we thought that was crazy. There are over half dozen athletes capable of running sub-1:43 in the 800 and half dozen capable of run 1500 in 3:30. In this day and age, it is almost superhuman to even think you can win double gold in 800/1500.

the NCAA App gives 2'14.96i WR as = 2'13.12

which is what you'd expect a 1'41-flat guy to at least run

this kid has gone 3'30, but looks more a 1500/3k guy

i can't see him having better than about 1'45 speed which with great over-distance endurance ( 3'30 ) coud get him

1'45.0 / 3'30.0 -> 2'14.4

add on ~ 2s for indoors & you are talking in a perfect race

mid-2'16

he won't be close on last year's form...

Neither will you be. Your success rate at predicting times was perhaps 5 percent success.

Please link me to the separate thread where you predicted his time. Because I do not see it in this thread.
