Drugs anyone? We have to be suspicious. Yes the dude is talented but come on he isn't even a sub 14 5k runner and he goes and runs this?
Doubt it. Kid ran 1:45.0x at the trials two year ago and has "only" improved that to 1:44.62. He's merely extended his range. He definitely looked like he had more in the tank at Pre and he did, just as he said. jjjjjj's post is right. More upside from this guy. He will take the AR at some point if he can work that 800 PR down a bit more.
3:47.77 in first real overseas competition at the distance -- wow.
