Huge run for Kipruto, who according to Jeff Eggleston and Cuan Walker ran a big negative split of 13:36/13:10 (!!!).
He's now #2 on the all-time list for road 10k, behind only Leonard Komon's 26:44 WR. No one else has ever broken 27:00 on the roads. No one has run 26:46 on the track since Galen Rupp set the AR of 26:44 back at the 2014 Pre Classic.
Kipruto is a huge talent as he already ran 27:08 on the roads at Healthy Kidney in NYC back in April and won the World U20 10,000m title in July.
We are with it!
WE now have three great athletes in the 5k and 10k range.
1. Rhonex Kipruto
2. Edward Zakayo
3. Stanley Mburu
......and they are all 27!
Tokyo 2020 will be great!
