In Part II of Jere Longman's interesting look into Yannis Pitsiladis's quixotic quest for the sub-two-hour marathon, we get a revealing portrait of Kenenisa Bekele's last 9 months.
He was 25 pounds overweight last summer and overweight again as recently as November after flaring up his left Achilles.
He was eating just 1,000 to 1,500 calories a day as recently as FEBRUARY.
What on Earth is going on here? This article kind of blithely treats his 2:06:36 in London but I'm really, really interested in hearing how Bekele's doing now in the leadup to Rio.
