Arkea, you're being immature.
Tim has no competition at the moment. No one has threatened him. He fears no one right now. He is the reigning champion and is the Olympic favorite.
Jakob will have to move up to 5000m to maximize his marketability. He cannot win the 1500m with 1:46 800m speed. He simply cannot kick.
It is not speed Jacob lacks to beat Tim, its endurance.
Correct. It is to run faster over 1500 meters. And that is what he is training for. And by the way sure he can win. But not this year, and probably not the next.
