British distance running is shambolic
British distance running is in a dire state at the moment. With the exception of mo farah there is **** all good distance runners who run 5000+. Not a single british athlete can go near the east africans anymore it is such a joke. There is no man that comes near to 13 for 5k which is what you need to compete with the best. Even australia is miles ahead of us with the MTC crew. The second fastest marathon of 2018 by a uk athlete was 2:16, 11 minutes slower than farahs time! When will something change. There needs to be more incentive and transparency with prize money otherwise young athletes are just not interested.
