Very interesting. I think Kiprop would be a great WR holder and it was very unlucky that he was injured in the 2012 OG Final and couldn't whip Makhloufi's butt. So funny to see one of the Kenyans comment on Facebook to him how Makh is so obviously doped! A shame he also lost his moment of fame behind Ramzi in the 08 games (and I notice a Ramzi time on the list). To have it happen twice, once when injured and unable to counter attack at all, must be galling.
Looking at it, you could say Kiprop is a Bolt-like talent in the 1500m - with his height and long stride, surely he takes less steps in a race than the others? Kiplagat is only 1 sec down from 2010 (at the same meet?). He looks so smooth, and I can really believe he is the clean WR holder. He has the fastest time in 8 years since Athens 04 Games. Wasn't that around when an EPO test came out? ;)
