that's a nonsense statement
he couda already broken 1/2M wr 2+y ago in that arab 1/2M of 58'50+
they jogged the 1st 5k & just hammered more & more to finish
2+y ago he couda run 1/2M wr along with King Mutai
This is a very intelligent move from him
it's a slow move
it shows inept management
he was capable of all this in '13
i said he coud run 26'15 / 26'20 that day in that arab 1/2 M shape in '13
he's wasted 2y on M
The training for both Half marathon and 10000m training are very much the same
1 needs speed training
1 needs endurance training
guess which needs which ?
And judging from what Florence Kiplagat, who is also coached by Renato Canova has been able to do, Kamworor is headed for BIG things!
i said that 2+y ago after that 58'50+ but G2K wasted his time on M
G2K is a resurrection phenomenon, not new
he is most powerful kenyan 10k runner i have ever seen
This year and next year Mo Farah should be prepared because the two 10000m championships will be won in 26'40" or faster
sadly i hoped that 2y ago for moscow
G2K had no interest back then in 10k when he couda busted wr
he may be even close to now
By early 2017 half marathon WR will be under 58'00", courtesy of Geoffrey Kipsang Kamworor
it's not a impressive number nor much interest
sammy wouda done it nearly decade ago if some pacing
however, i say now
serious shot at
Interesting you have such detailed thoughts and memories on him from 2 years ago after saying in the first post in this thread that the world XC was your first good look at him.
Oh well, some people have delusions.
