I hate the behavior of this board that if a white runner does something amazing, right away the coach is responsible and mentioned and brought up. Hunter and Tinman. Rupp/Hasay and Salazar. Jager/Houlihan and Schumacher. The Hansons. You guys get it.
But Leonard Korir just ran the fastest American debut ever and sub-2:08 and there is no mention of his coach and training group? I'm going to assume Scott Simmons and the ADP, but I can't confirm that info anywhere.
Congrats, Korir, but let's get some insight on his marathon training cycle. I konw Simmons is Canova-trained, but would love to hear more.
