Who, who, who, who and who?
Sorry but that’s how I feel
Rhonex Kipruto is kinda a big deal.
I’ve honestly never heard of him. And I’m a bigger running fan than 99.4% of the population
Unless you've been stuck in a cave for the last year and half. I don't know how you can claim to be a big running fan and not know who he is.
Okay, I’ve read up on him. Looks like he’s won in the U20 class, which I only pay passing attention to. Apart from that, he’s really done nothing on the senior circuit.
Kosgei looks like she’s had more success, but looks to be exclusively a marathon runner. I tend to pay more attention to track runners. On the marathon side, there just seems to be a parade of anonymous African runners who cycle in and out of the winners circle. With one or two more major victories I probably would have started to take note
Point is, if an avid fan has trouble recognizing these names, the casual fan has no hope
You can try to qualify the statement all you want, but you're not a fan of distance running if you don't know who Rhonex Kipruto is. Period.
