RE: Wait, why is Kirui not the favorite?

Did I miss something in the past few months? All I know is:

1) He won Boston and Worlds last year, defeating his two most heralded competitors (Rupp and Tola) in those races
2) He was the consensus #1 marathoner (non-Kipchoge division) in 2017
3) No one has talked to him, but it seems he's training well.

Did I miss some 63-minute HM somewhere? Or an injury? Look, I can see why you could be really excited about Rupp. Or really excited about Tola etc. So I'm not saying he needs to be *your* favorite. But he's the favorite on paper, right? Why is no one talking about him that way?


Because LRC sets the tone when it comes to “insider discussion” and they have decided that he’s not the favorite.
