Hocker would SMOKE Ches from 1500-5k. Ches might win in a 10k.
Ches' kick is overrated. His form was crappy. When challenged, his form breaks down even more and he just dies.
Yeah but a guy who is 20s slower isn't going to be challenging you. He is going to be sucking wind 100m back.
Obviously the question here is Hocker in sub 1315 shape now or is he still in like 1330 shape and just a lot better at the shorter stuff. Until he shows up and runs a 5k, we are guessing. Eventually Hocker will show up in a 332/1310 race and we can see what he is like when pushed. Right now the potential seems limitless. When he hits the bell in 1210 we will learn if he can kick off that pace or if he fades when the fun starts.
