Quote Of The Day

"At the moment, there is an athlete clearly stronger than any other in the World, and (it) is Geoffrey Mutai ... There is a reason for this: Geoffrey is preparing (for the Boston) Marathon ... Preparing marathon in the modern way, it's possible to be very much competitive in a Cross, 4 weeks before. But preparing a cross with the Kenyan system, you can forget that is possible to run a marathon 4 weeks later."

- Renato Canova, coach of arguably the world's greatest runner right now, Geoffrey Mutai. Canova, in his post on LetsRun.com, is challenging Athletics Kenya to let Mutai to continue training with him and not in the official Kenyan camp for World Cross-Country. If AK insists on Mutai training in their camp, Mutai will skip World Cross-Country. Mutai dominated the Kenyan XC Champs (the world's toughest footrace) and averaged 2:05:03 in his 2 marathons last year. Read about his Kenyan XC win here.

The Toughest XC Race In The World

Geoffrey Mutai Dominates Kenyan XC, Linet Masai Outkicks Vivian Cheruiyot, Defending Champs Ebuya And Chebet Out Of Worlds If you're looking for the best runner on the planet right now, look no further than Geoffrey Mutai, as he is on an incredible roll and he kept it going Saturday in Kenya. Mutai, who averaged 2:05:03 in his 2 marathons last year (neither of which he won), has now won 3 XC races in a row in Kenya by dominating margins, as he won by 44 seconds on Saturday if the results are correct. On the women's side, world 10k champ Linet Masai outkicked world 5k champ Vivian Cheruiyot. The Kenyan XC champs were full of drama, as defending world champs Joseph Ebuya (dropped out) and Emily Chebet (injured ankle in race) did not make the Kenyan teams for Worlds. Not surprisingly, in the junior race, recent world junior record setter Isiah Koech (12:53 for 5k and 7:37 3k) ran to a comfortable 4-second win. He said: "My aim is to take gold in Spain before going for the World Championships." *Koech XC Thread
*Ebuya: "It was too fast for me and I have problems with my stomach. I'm sad I will not be able to defend my title in Spain."

On the men's side, former Boston champ Deriba Merga went out in a ridiculous 13:37, set a new 8km world best of 21:51 for the roads, and then held on for a 59:24 - good enough for a 20-second win. Patrick Makau, one of the pre-race favorites, appears to be in marathon training mode as, after trying to stay with Merga early on, he only managed a 63:51.

It was a tremendous week on and off the track from 17-year-old Isiah Koech's 12:53 5k to Bernard Lagat's American 2 mile record to Chris Solinsky's 3:54 mile to Kim Smith's 1:07:36 half marathon. We've got it all covered, even take a look a stud American high jumper, and ask everyone associated with the sport to think of you - its fans. Because no matter how good the action on the track, if no one is watching it, our sport will suffer.

Isiah just turned 17 at the end of December and he put on a performance to remember as he pulled away from World Champ Eliud Kipchoge for the super-impressive win. 12:53 indoors is amazing. With no advance fanfare (the track writers in Oregon didn't even write about it), American Galen Rupp was in the race in his 2011 indoor opener and ran a solid 13:21 after being on 13:05 pace at 3k, according to this thread. In other action, Nixon Chepseba got the narrow win over Augustin Choge in a world-leading 3:34 in the 1,500m, and Liu Xiang was 3rd in his European return.

John Hancock And Boston Marathon Do Not Make An Offer To Meb To Run This Year's Race Races have limited funds, and Boston's are way more limited than New York or London's, but it shows the financial realities of our sport when the Boston Marathon does not even extend an offer to America's top marathoner the last decade to run its race. That is what Meb Keflizighi is saying happened on his website. Perhaps Boston did not want to insult Meb with a low offer.

Russell Brown Cruises To 3:54 Win, Webb, Manzano And Verzbicas All Over 4 The men's mile featured Alan Webb, Leo Manzano, Nick Willis and high school star Lukas Verzbicas, but the star of the night was Russell Brown, who crushed the field winning in 3:54 as Webb, Manzano and Verzbicas all didn't break 4. Afterwards, Webb threw a tantrum (seriously, that's a fair way of describing it) before addressing the press, and we'll have more on that Sunday. In other action, Sally Kipyego turned back Jenny Simpson in the 3k, Phoebe Wright got another win in the 800m, but the performance of the night may have been Dejen Gebremeskel running 7:35 and outkicking Mo Farah with a last lap of 26 while having one shoe on for most of the race.

Post-Race: LRC Alan Webb Throws A Tantrum After Disappointing Opener Alan Webb's competitive fire is legendary and the dark side of that competitive fire was on full display after Webb's disappointing performance. We've seen many athletes get upset, but none like Webb on Saturday night, especially after an earlier season opener. We've got the details and try to give some perspective to Webb's behavior.

Have Athletes Reached Their Limits? The author seems to think they have because so many world records have stagnated since the 1980s. He does acknowledge drugs played a role in many records from the '80s. However, he is perplexed by one athlete - Usain Bolt - and says Bolt's breakthroughs today are why he is so newsworthy. Track and field, by focusing on the competition and not the records, can stay relevant in our opinion.
