Not true my friend.
We think the field is AMAZING but it only has 2/13 fastest men from 2013 in it. And the top two missing were the World #1 and World #2 in 2013.
Uhhh the World #1 from 2013 is Wilson Kipsang, and he's running. Or do you mean the World Championship #1, Stephen Kiprotich, who is also running? What are you on about?
Agreed that I should've included Kipchoge. Mosop and Makau didn't do anything in the marathon in 2013, but sure they'll likely be back.
Disagreed that the other Dubai runners behind Lelisa Desisa (who won Boston as well) should be mentioned. Remember how the Ethiopian marathon team did in 2012 after their blistering Dubai times? Yeah.....
Hey LRC, the marathon is about a lot more than a time on a watch. That's why Kiprotich is better than Abshero. That's why Wanjiru is the greatest of all time.
