And to say 98% Kipruto (KEN) loses (rather than 98% Girma (ETH) wins) shows the evident bias.
Yep, Nationalism trumps all. And from above you can see where the LRC folks have pitched their sails.
"The Ethiopians really pushed hard because they knew I was kicking," Kipruto said. "They had their plans before we started the race and I had plans for us Kenyans to push hard.
"For me in championships I always believe experience matters a lot, it is not about shape.
"Steeplechase is normally a Kenyan event it belongs to Kenyans but nowadays there are competitors from around the world."
Explains the "victory dance" I guess.
