Once again I guarantee you Ches never said he let Jenkins win. He was saying at that point in the race he gave up and was at peace with the fact that Jenkins was going to win (no matter what Ches did, ie no use fighting to the line). Let him.../let me... etc is a very common phrasing in east Africa. If anything it's a way of sounding modest.
â€œWhen I saw my teammate coming over, I was like â€˜let him take itâ€™ because heâ€™s my teammate, weâ€™re not rivals. Weâ€™re just trying to score as many points as we can,â€ said Cheserek after the race.http://www.letsrun.com/news/2015/03/eric-jenkins-takes-down-edward-cheserek-for-ncaa-title-2-or-did-cheserek-let-him-win/
Your argument is illogical. You say he didn't say (which he 100% did as shown above) but if he did say it, he didn't mean it because we don't understand the East African definition of let.http://www.letsrun.com/news/2015/03/eric-jenkins-takes-down-edward-cheserek-for-ncaa-title-2-or-did-cheserek-let-him-win/
