Just saw the results from today's marathon and Kiprotich took home gold for the second straight year. I looked up his Wiki page and it looks like his PR is only 2:07:20. What makes him such a good championship racer? How does he beat guys with PRs two minutes faster than him?
Kiprotich's track times are also really ugly. He's like 13:20 and 27:50, barely under 28. What's this guy's history? He is only 24.
