Don't Count Lagat Out Yet
“I have [the masters records] as a focus, yes. If I aim for a good time and end up not doing so well, I hope I can break [those] records. The [media] attention has been, yes, ‘Bernard Lagat is 40, what is he going to do?’ I still feel like I can perform at the highest level. 13:14 most of the time wins World Championships. That’s all I can say. I just need to prepare really well with Coach James Li, train hard and come back here sharper in June to make the team.”
