How have I only now heard of Baumann?
how it shakes wrote:
In addition to Ritz, you left out Dieter Baumann (12:54, 137 lbs) and Bob Kennedy (12:58, 146 lbs) who are non-Africans ahead of Teg on the list. So you actually left out three of the top five non-Africans at 5k.
I agree the top top has a bit more mass than the general 12:50s field. Maybe the amount of testosterone needed to be a world beater usually excludes ectomorphs. (I mean natural testosterone/athleticism)
