Samuel Tefera broke Hicham El Guerrouj’s world record in a thrilling race and then barely celebrated.
We break it down and are joined (79 minute mark) by Tefera’s rabbit in the mile record, Jordan Wiliamsz who reveals he never spoke to Tefera before or after the race.
We had a ton of other serious action including road 5k world records and not so serious action like Anthony Famiglietti going sub 4 in the mile at age 40 thanks to a dog and Lance Armstrong and another drug cheat showing up at the Austin Marathon.
Plus live commentary and reaction of Jakob Ingebrigtsen’s 1500m win in Dusseldorf over Tefera on Wednesday.
