Wow, 21 times. That's great.

He split 12:57 for the last 5km of the Paric WC, where Geb did all the work in front (you losers realize Geb wasn't all about sit and kick, right?)

Geb also split about 12:59 in that race, while past his prime!

And he still running damn fast more than a decade after that Paris race!

Geb definitely did his share of sit and kick. The only reason he did all the work was because he was old and no longer had the same finishing kick he had when he was younger. Every 10000m title he won was in a sit and kick race with zero work because he had such great speed. He was losing his speed in 2003 so that's why he led.

I'm happy that you just found out about this. I remember how amazed I was when I first saw the race. This is what we miss about the 10k and hate what it has turned into these days.

That wasn't past his prime. That was Geb's finest race and he lost to a better runner.

Obviously you are not very well informed about the subject you are talking about.

Are you serious?

Are you serious? Geb was well past his track prime by 2003. He had already had surgery on his right Achillies and his left was already starting to bother him (he had surgery on his left in 2004).

It is also ok to point out when someone is not very well informed about the subject at hand.
