With the super spikes and tracks it is still weak. Uganda superstar Joshua Cheptegei ran 7:31 to close out his 5000m world record of 12:35. JC averaged 7:33 pace for the entire 5000m. Let us get real here. This 3000m record is still weak for the Americans but it is inching closer to respectability. Props to Grant Fisher for taking it down a bit lower.
