He also split 2:18 enroute to 50 km before, not included in his total. He's gonna put the 'WR' out of reach.
No records are meant to be broken, somewhere some good but not great runner at some high school or college, will say to himself, I am probably never going to break the World Record of 2:02.57, but I could be like Kawauchi and run Sub 2:20's over and over, Example the University Of Oregon on an average year has 15-20 runners who can do what Kawauchi is doing, but they don't think of that, so after college most quit if they feel they can't contend for World and Olympic Medals.
Doug put down the bottle, no need to drink like that this early in the year.
Kawauchi is a special athlete in all regards. To think a any bunch of distance runners could do what he he doing is doing is nonsense and you know it. To think a group of Americans could do it is even more absurd.
Its not just the sub 2:20's record, the guy just ran two 2:10's in a one month period.
Not even Rogers at his best was cranking out this quality.
