|Subject: ||RE: Emmanuel Mutai Replaces Mosses Mosop in 2012 London Games|
Why do you say they are the best two runners. This year they don't even rank. As both Makau And G Mutai did not finish there marathons. Makau has been low par all year, finishing second to a good Spainish athlete in a half marathon in Granollers in Spain in 62:44, and finishing a disappointing 5th in the Great Manchester Run, over a minute back from the ageing great Haile Gebrselassie. So I would hardly call him Kenya's best current marathon runner. There is no disputing that Makau was amazing in 2010-2011. But this is 2012, and Makau is'nt currently up to scratch. G Mutai on the other hand has shown better form and has ran well over 10km, and perhaps should of turned his attention in getting a place in the 10000m team and competing in the trials. But so far his marathon record for 2012 is DNF. Repetition will only take you so far. Current form is more important. And the best current Kenyan is London Victor Kipsang!!!!!!
