Are you kidding, he sounds like every adult Ugandan athlete
He looks and sounds very young.
What's up with that 1500m? That's about 4:08 mile pace (if 3:42 is a 4 flat pace). Then 2 months later in July, he ran twice that distance (now 3000m) at a pace only a touch slower (3:56.5 1500m pace)? And then 6 days later, runs 10,000m at 4:25/mile pace?

Yes. How many 15 year olds in Africa are sponsored or have the money to fly around Europe to run fast times? Like every young kid in Africa, World JRs is always their first major race and first chance to run all out.

According to Jack Daniels, 27:26 for 10,000m should be equivalent roughly to:
1500m in 3:32
3000m in 7:33
5000m in 13:10
But Kiplimo ran
1500m in 3:50
3000m in 7:52
5000m in 13:19
Is it really possible to be that slow at 1500m and 3000m and yet so fast at 10,000m?
