I think there is virtually zero possibility that Kipchoge wants Bekele at his training monastery. I get the impression Eliud likes a little breathing room (see: whoever he paced in London recently or Adola in Berlin) to work his magic. Throwing the now 2:01 Bekele into the mix would not be beneficial to what that group has been doing.
I agree. It also seems like the Kenyan groups are about ten years ahead of the Ethiopian teams as well in terms of PT assistance, nutrition and just dedication to training. If Bekele could theoretically train in Kenya, I bet he would improve. This is all based on the NN article they posted about his lifestyle and training.
Ethiopia has been dominating the Kenyans recently now.
