Title. In the Euros
Title. In the Euros
Why not 3k steeple? He could start in the marathon too and propably take top10. Why he start on 1500 and 5? Because he train for this, and there he is the best runner.
Yeah but for those he couldnt have ran 1500 and 5000. 10k is sunday so should be doable
I don't think he is qualified since he never have done a 10000m on the track before
Ah ok, sucks :(
He got walloped by more than 5 minutes at the last 10K he jogged, including by mountain runners.
Well, if you think that tripling at a major championship meet is so easy (or so good for your training) maybe you should do it....
One would think that he still wants to run a few other quality races this season...
That's because he jogged. He probably would win a Euro 10K track race, if fresh and if he so desired. He just won the 5K track race, and he won the Euro XC title last autumn. He would be the clear favorite.
Of course he jogged. But that answers why he isn't running the 10K as well. He'd rather jog it.
Jakob dares not attempt the 1500-5000-10000, the Hassan triple, because he is afraid and not as good as Hassan. Discuss.
Remember (if you were around) the LR meme from 15 years ago? Teg don't do no 10K. Same thing.
last 10k he did was european cross country championship and he won by making it look like a sunday jog
He could easily run in the 26's. I would do the 1,500m/10,000m double at Nationals every year in college and ran 3:45/29:05. I would estimate Jakob could be a 3:27/26:20 type guy in the future. Grant Fisher ran 26:33 and face it Jakob is in a different league talent wise and he is much younger then Grant.
Like every other runner besides Hassan, he doesn’t want to. If I was him, I wouldn’t consider it for even a second and I wouldn’t line up for the marathon either.
He's still aiming for the World Record in the 1500 - maintaining that kind of speed is the larger priority. He'll probably do the 5000/10000 double in the future once the WR has been taken care off.
What about defending his Gold Medal in 2024 and if he wins in Paris, he’ll go for the hat trick in 2028.
See Hassan's 2022 season for examples of why no one attempts the triple. He also might have his eyes set on a fast time at Brussels or one of the other DL meetings later in the year. The only benefit he'd get from doing the 10,000m is showing how much better he is than everyone else in Europe, which is already known.
Jakob have run one 10 km race on the road and that was in 2019 at the age of 19 (Hytteplanmila). He won the race in 27:54 which was a Norwegian road 10K record at the time.
Quit false flagging.
Jakob was doing the race as a workout, his overall average pace included his recovery pace. Kilian would be spanked by Jakob in anything not on a trail.
i believe if the olympics or world championships had exact same setup as Euros, he would go for the 10000. Just not worth it for what Euros are. Im sure he still has some 1500 goals left for the year.
and of course he didn't have a qualifying time. but he would have gotten one if he found it worth the risk/reward.
