I really hope that his foot is healed for the final, because that can do some real damage if you haven't run barefoot your whole life. Paul Chelimo thrives on doubt. What he should know is that he looked like he was a step slow this year because, as he said, he wasn't able to train consistently because of family obligations. My hope then was that closer to world's that would no longer be an issue and that he would round into form. He seems to be in great form right now. Good luck in the finals! He should contend unless Ethiopia uses their auto qualifier to pace the race and it is too fast for his liking. Looks unlikely they will do that, so he'll be there in a bumper car derby at the end.

African American . African ethnicity but American passport.
Trump is a European American. European ethnicity (half German half Scottish?) but american by passport.
I suspect the Bro Jos are European Americans too.
The natives are the only Americans who do no require a prefix or inverted commas.
This is history 101 come on.
There are no true native you dummy. Do some research you pc weenie.

No idea if that’s true, but if I had to take a guess ...
Actually, I think it's the general LRC community that does not like him because he's taking spots away from white skinned American born runners. Not necessarily the Brojos. I think the Brojos like him.
So the running community is pretty racist then huh?
Most people don't care because he actually gives us a chance to medal in a distance event lol.
American, huh? wrote:
If Crashimo plays it right, he can wipe out most of the field with 300 to go, and run inside the rail for the win.
Only Jakob and Filip get to run according to "white rules" and can run inside the rail, stomp into others from behind and whatever else they want to do.
