I honestly wonder if German Fernandez was the most talented runner ever to live. He basically did what he did in his freshman year of college in his second year of running. He seemed a whole other tier of talent above guys like Rupp, Tegenkamp, or Ritz who ended up running in the 12:50s for 5000m.
His freshman year isnt even close to Tom Byers freshman year.
