"Truth is, Kipchoge makes me believe. Lots of guys claim integrity and that they don't dope. Kipchoge eminates it. His entire lifestyle of one simplicity, compassion, and integrity. Every action he takes that we know or hear about emphasizes that. Outside of being fast, every other snippet of Kipchoge points to genuine integrity. No rumors or whispers. No bad behavior. No one with any negative story. Where there is smoke, there is usually fire.
Consider guys who are believed protected like Lance, Mo, Bolt, etc. Tons of smoke around all of those. One already went up in flames. Character flaws, anger, risk taking lifestyles, reported missed tests, sketchy associations with coaches, allegations and rumor.
With Kipchoge....zero smoke. Zero rumors. Zero whispering. At the end of the day it comes down to what do you believe. Eluid, simply put, makes me believe. If it's possible to be clean and dominant, it's Kipchoge that could be that athlete."
That is very nicely put, LM.
What a difference between Farah's behaviour in the last week and Kipchoge's.
