So I don't really follow marathoning or running and I looked up the world records for men and women. I know that the Kenyan and Ethiopian runners are pretty much in a different class from other countries. My question is who is "Paula" that the commentators keep mentioning? She is a white UK runner who has a world record time that is around 5 minutes faster than what most Kenyan/Ethiopian women normally win these races in. Is this normal for women and are there other women like her dominating the Africans?
