Congrats to him on his PR...which happens to be a U.S. Master's record....yeah...
UNITED STATES (<--- notice this here) Masters Record
Notably, half of the US distance records are held by a native Kenyan, who set two of them within the last year at age 37.
You can go blabbering on and on about how it's great to have a US Masters Record, but US Records are never impressive on the world stage
US 1500m - 3:29 (set by a Kenyan)
World 1500m- 3:26
US Mile- 3:46
World Mile- 3:43
US 2mile- 8:07
World 2mile- 7:58
US 3k- 7:29 (set by a Kenyan)
World 3k- 7:20
US 5k- 12:53 (set by a Kenyan)
World 5k- 12:37
US 10k- 26:48
World 10k- 26:17
Taking the US Record is basically getting a booby-prize.
In fact, random Kenyans could likely just get a citizenship and take whatever records they desired at will (sort of like what Lagat did)...they're THAT vulnerable.
