Subject: RE: Why arenít we producing new distance stars?

eh for the 1500 at least I think there is enough turbulence and too many real fast faces for a constant. It seems like every year someone new at 3:35.00 or faster.
As far as distance, you are seeing the illusion of stagnancy because you are looking at true cream of the crop talents. Sub 13 is special for anyone, doesn't matter nationality. We have five guys with that talent right now so of course their names will stick around for a while! Do you think the Kenyans lament that Eliud Kipchoge is still on top? Heck no, he's an amazing runner. Same goes for Lagat Ritz Teg Sol and probably this will be the year for Rupp! Why complain about top talent being around for "so long" we are talking the best here. Part of why they are still here is because they are the best.
Not complaining about athletes being around for so long becasue that's a good thing, what I am asking is where are the new guys.Hit the submit button below if you want us to review the post.
