And we also say hell no.....
Our staff had a heated debate about this topic earlier this week. We share that argument with you below.
What do you think?
Wanjiru is not ahead of Mo, that's Prefontainian exaggeration. He ran some 2:05 marathons, tried to kill his wife, and got drunk a lot.
Hell, Wanjiru is way ahead of Mo and he's dead.
Just laughed at the thought of Farah having to deal with Wanjiru. Farah wouldn't know what hit him. I reckon that most of those sub 2:06 guys would destroy Farah. They know how to race. They don't care. It's a shame none of that fire exists in the 1500-10k runners anymore.
Just figured since we were projecting what Mo "could do", why not project what Wanjiru could do?
Sammy destroys Mo at the marathon, half marathon and 10k. Neither make the top list in the 5k.
And yes, just talking smack.
But that is exactly what World/Olympic champions do. They must race their best on one specific day when everyone else in the world is trying to race their best. This is much much harder to do and carries a lot more weight in my mind.
