And another one bites the dust.
Well, the Kenyans have a high percentage of talented people. However, the dominance they and the Epiopians have enjoyed for the past 30 years has for the most part been artificial, in terms of being so far ahead of everyone else.
With literally every E. African being on drugs, not only have we seen armies of fast runners, but the top responders have put the records out of reach of clean athletes of all stripes for decades if not forever.
Dr. Rosa started the ball rolling in earnest when he decided to take his drug experimentation from cycling to running. Then he and Jos Hermens and the rest basically ruined the sport. Sure, the naive latte sipping man-bun sporting sissies will tug on their beards looking for ways to rationalize all of this, including their own belief that on some level cheating by third worlders is OK, because of colonialism, the patriarchy... it's a laugh riot.
Hopefully someone will spill the beans on the officials who've been helping these cheats. In the US, it's obvious how officials had been helping sprinters for decades - look at how many times Carl Lewis was caught using "supplements", never mind other athletes. It always takes someone going around the regular channels to blow the doors off, as with the Marion Jones debacle. It will be great if and when this happens with middle and long distance running.
If things are cleaned up we'll still see a lot of E. Africans of course. But the times will be brought back to earth. Sure, that's been happening with better testing, but these athletes need to be properly tested year round. Naive Westerners, so many of them unaware of the brainwashing going on, have been taught to doubt and ridicule their own athletes, their own peoples, for decades - in all endeavors - while at the same time they've been brainwashed into worshipping any and all offerings from the third world.
Give that 800 fella from GB the bronze from last year's WCs. And no whining about the two Europeans who were first and second. Those guys were tested year round, constantly. Of course the SJWs whose every opinion is something they've been told to believe by their marxist masters will whine, gnash their teeth, and grumble about everyone being cheats except athletes of certain approved backgrounds or those from third world nations.
