Ms McColgan is jealous. She needs to tame her jealousy.
I’m no fan of Ethiopian sports but this is just peak butthurt

Try to keep the green-eyed monster at bay, Eilish.
Same as her mother. Acorn doesn't fall far from the tree. Liz got into several public spats with other athletes like Lisa Martin-Ondieki and continues throw shade at her daughter's rivals to this day.
what’s the problem?
the message boards here are littered with similar posts from people who don’t even have to compete against her.
But it is not like Ms McColgan is competing against her either. I don’t believe McColgan has run a marathon and if she does she would not likely finish within a mile of this Ethiopian.
She says she keeps her fingers crossed it is just shoes ,It seems she is hinting at her using PED's, if so she (Assefa) will probably get caught, but if it is PED's I think the Doctors/Pharmacist's in more advanced Country's would be able to create something better than what Ethiopian Doctors/Pharmacists (if Assefa is using PED's they would almost certainly come from Ethiopia)) can create, So if it becomes a battle of Ped's USA and Western Athletes where the Medicine Field is more advanced would have a HUGE advantage.
Note Like Everyone else in the World Assefa is supposed to get a presumption of innocence until PROVEN GUILTY in a Court Room. Many Are not giving her this
It's just good banter... Why are you all crying so much? It's funny, I don't want all other pro's to be sitting on social media clapping at each other. " OH congrats to you" - "No congrats to you star"..
Maybe she's mistaking Assefa for her anabolic compatriot, Allan Wells?
You seem to have trouble forming plurals.
Fans of the sport don't want to know the reality. It's the same as it was with Lance Armstrong and gang when he was doing his thing.
Take a Ferrari out on the road and it can dust 99.9% of the cars as is, add rocket fuel to it and you will see it do something unnatural. That is an elite athlete using PEDS.
I've coached and been very close with several people that have competed at the very top of the sport and it's an open secret how dirty it is and the pipeline of questionable performances that continue to pour through it year after year just diminishes it's validity. It's been that way since post-WWII with the advancement of pharmaceuticals, open money in the sport, SPORTS AGENTS and wider access to travel.
There is world-class talent, there are good facilities (fast tracks, roads, training facilities, etc.) and good coaches that add up to create world-class performances, then mix in PEDS and shoes that have come into the sport over the past seven years and it creates what you are seeing now. It's a simple fact whether fans of sport really want to know it or not.
People have always been the same, the only thing that changes are the circumstances and opportunities, but it's even written in the Bible from hundreds of years ago in 1 Timothy 6:10 - "10 For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows. 10 Lust for money brings trouble and nothing but trouble."
The lust for money, power and fame....in the end the sport will create it's own demise from the inside out like the Roman empire.
She's being light-hearted.
Laughing is all you can do in the face of such shameless cheating. Not like anyone is ever going to take it seriously, even in Kenya the 'testing' is just lip service to a completely unmanageable problem.
You should also laugh at her 30:00.86 10,000 m time then. That's 87 hundredths away from Ma's territory. Or does she somehow get a pass with you?
Maybe she is too and she's a massive hypocrit.
Irrelevant to the fact that this marathon record is a joke.
Assefa ran nearly as fast for the whole 42.195km as did Eyelash for her 10k PB
Eilish's 10k PB pace of 30 minutes flat (more or less) works out to a 2:07 marathon time I think
30:00 vs. 31:15 per 10K is hardly "nearly as fast"
