And, Subway, another thing : you say that all the Kenyans are the same for you : Manangoi (world champion) the same as Kwemoi (WR holder in altitude).
This is one of the reasons because many of you think doping is widely diffused among the top runners, transferring the situation of one in the situation of other 30.
I think you need to start to think of INDIVIDUALS, who in every part of the world are different one from another, physically, mentally, for education, ambience, behavior.
This happens with Kenyans and with Americans, with Europeans and with Asian people.
I'm, and I always will be in the future, against every kind of generalization, exactly the opposite of LR posters demonstrate to do when put everybody (ALL KENYANS, ALL TOP RUNNERS, ALL SPORTSMEN) in the same pot. And the pot is the one of doped, something NOT ACCECTABLE without knowing the single cases.
Grazie mille, Allenatore. This has been my singular goal since I started posting on this site. To get them to see Kenyan runners as complete human beings with varying characters rather than just faceless drones. But it's all in vain, I'm afraid. I've never seen a Letsrun poster change their mind about any topic or thing. Stuborn, intructable lot.
I am white and I can tell Kwemoi from Manangoi, from Kimetto, from both Wilson Kipketers, Bernard Barmasai, Paul Tergat, Wilson Kipsang, Kamworor, the Mutais, Conseslus Kipruto from Brimin Kipruto, Danny Wanjiru from Sammy Wanjiru, etc., etc., etc., and yet I train with people who follow athletics and to them it's always just another black. "Must have been a Kenyan or an Ethiopian. Another black dude."
I can't understand this.
And Subway come here talking like a know it all and then says something like that.
That's stupid and coevettian.
Oh, he’s already a confirmed disciple, on top of being one of dozens of Kenya armchair experts here.
