Read his thoughts here on Alberto Stretti's blog:
Despite the fact he coached the surprising race winner, Canova wasn't happy as he was focused on Bekele, "Today, I obviously was not happy."
An incredible read!! Canova says Bekele did have some achilles problems leading in but that he was " was confident in a time under 2:05" and thought he could win the race.
Despite the bad race, Canova is very bullish on Bekele's future as he says "His engine is still the most powerful in the World" and thought he'd win despite only doing 60% of a normal buildup.
As for the race winner, Canova says he was getting better and better in training and they recently revised his goal down to 2:05.
