Quote Of The Day
“The sight of the lead athletes warming up in their vividly colored uniforms among the black-clad pacers, and the green laser beams spilling across the tarmac, was strange and eerie – like a silent, illicit rave on a deserted freeway. As the seconds counted down to the start of the race, [Zersenay] Tadese bounced on his toes like a boxer and [Lelisa] Desisa worried at his arm sleeves. [Eliud] Kipchoge, at 5’6″ and 125 pounds, was strikingly composed. His eyes looked straight ahead. With 15 seconds to go, he dipped his torso and braced his body to run. At 5:45 am, the starter’s air horn bleated and the three athletes shot off, behind the car and a group of six pacemakers, into the darkness.”
