Its definetly not the same, Ritz v Lagat. I dont understand it but wasn't Goucher beating Lagat years ago. Sure some guys get better with age, but call me skeptical or call me stupid but the has anyone have the stats on his progression. I just hope we are not watching another Regina Jacobs here.
This strategy of surging at the end, we hear now from sports scientists, makes perfect sense for someone on the juice. In simple terms, the steroid is thought to enhance anaerobic capacities, thus making a runner less drained late in a race than a comparable athlete who isn't pharmaceutically aided.
Have we ever seen Lagat take it out hard, sustain it and win. I can't recall...
