You know it's coming. He always has an excuse but this time he said he was 90% in pre-race interviews. He's 0-3 in marathons this year which is not good for his brand. It was probably a mistake to pick Berlin given the competition, should've gone for Chicago or New York or even run the Worlds.
Eliud had (by his standards) the inevitable 'bad day' at the marathon and still managed to eke out a win despite terrible conditions and very tough competition. Debate is over. Undisputed marathon GOAT ðŸ
I think the naggers who always want to see Bekele race Kipchoge at every marathon need to take a seat and let these supremely talented athletes do what they want.
