We talked to Stanley Kebenei and Shadrack Kipchirchir about what sets apart Paul Chelimo. They said there wasn't much in training, but when it comes to racing Chelimo is at another level.
Kipchirchir said, "in racing he’s a monster. I don’t know where he gets it"
The video below has some nice interaction between Chelimo, Kipchirchir and Kebenei. We then asked Chelimo why he's so much better at racing and he said it's because he comes from a tougher part of Kenya and his life hasn't been easy. With Paul's jovial attitude it's hard to tell how serious he is sometimes. Worth a watch if you've got a few minutes. Plus Kebenei talks about how much he relishes the opportunity to race, the freedom in America, and the flag.
