Guppy is right, probably, although with Geb we have benefit of hindsight - with Bekele there remain unknowns. Still, it is too early to write him off. As rojo said, he ran a 2.05 low debut. He just needs to get his prep right, which Canova might help with now. From the look of things he's brought too much impatience to his marathon training so far.
Well, Canova knew KB had achilles problems and still let him run.
Yes, a good point. Maybe Canova's not getting much say in scheduling etc?
Here's a question for Bekele now. Should he, after this, go straight after London in his growing desperation to break through quickly - and risk another disappointment. Or does he take his time and do a sensible, long build-up to Berlin (say) in the autumn?
