What's crazy is that in less than two years we've gone from "holy cow, he just about went sub-2 who cares if it was orchestrated," to "put him in Boston with a tailwind and there's a 1:59 with yesterday's effort."
Seriously, it is ON to get the sub-2, no matter how at this point, because it's going to happen before we know it.
(But Mutai's 2:05 at NYC is the mark.)

I bet he could have outkicked Bekele and El G in the 5000
