He never doped. He likes Tokyo. He won there in 2008, running 2.07.26. The 1.72/60kg central Swiss runner (and German speaker) follows a lot of training plans by Canova. He is built and suited to the marathon. Can't remember his 10,000 best, but I don't think he has gone under 28" - I remember him running 28.20 in that Euro 10,000 challenge in Lisbon many years ago. However, had he focused on 10,000, I think he could have gone 27.45" approx. He's a diesel runner, rather than 'speed runner' - good in adverse conditions (medal in Osaka, heat and humid).
He takes breaks during the year, and does other endurance sports like cross country skiing, mountain biking and swimming.
