There are some fast guys, but one of the guys I'm most interested in is Augustine Choge. His PRs are ridiculous: 1:44/3:29/7:28/12:53/59:26. Now he's making his marathon debut.
Does anyone know the fastest marathon by a guy who has broken 1:45 in the 800? I know that guys like Farah, Rupp, and Kipchoge have run fast in the 1500/mile, but none of them have been close to 1:44. Has anyone ever broken 1:45 and 2:10? I imagine that Choge should be able to break 2:10 in Chicago if he can run 59:26 for the half (which he ran just last year at RAK).
