I don't care if this piece is laced with retrospective fiction. It simply adds to the legend of Yuki Kawauchi that is now fully secured after his Boston marathon victory. There is nothing else he has to do. Yuki is definitely a legend, now and forever.
I also really want to know more about what happened between the time Kirui took off and Yuki catching him. I am guessing there is no footage of that, but it is something I would like to know more about and see. See Yuki off in the distance slowly stalking down Kirui with a seemingly insurmountable lead while Kirui keeps looking behind him is one of the images burned in my memory from this race.
Yes. He will be up there with Pre.
He made Boston a pure guts race and he was the only one who could win it.
