Quote Of The Day
“This shows you Kipchoge’s character … After I [broke 13:00 for the first time and] ran 12:56 in Oslo, he was the first person to come up to me [and he was] genuinely excited like literally moments after the race, congratulating me for breaking 13. He was so excited, [saying] ‘That is awesome. Congratulations.’’I was like (thinking), ‘Aren’t you my competitor? You obviously probably had a bad day for you’'(Kipchoge was way back in 14th in 13:09). He was already a world champ and had done amazing things and I looked up to him [so] to have him come and be the first person to congratulate me and be that excited, I was just like ‘Holy cow. That is awesome.'”
