I wish people would just drop the Boston crap. Boston was always considered a tough course- there are uphills and the downhills often mess people up.
If the IAAF didn't come up with those stupid restrictions no one would even think about it.
Watch the "Dual in the Sun" video- they talk about the WR, didn't Joan Benoit set a WR there? No one questioned it and she went on to run fater.
Boston times are legit.
Now, the odds of ANYONE setting a WR are slim- everything, external and internal, has to be perfect. So, predicting that someone WON'T set a WR is easy and the odds are in your favor.
The only "strange notions" are those that question times at Boston.
The above is a perfect illustration of what is wrong with our educational system...most people don't know how to think.
