All of a sudden, Roberston is better than D. Wanjiru, Adola, Kitata, Korio and Lelisa?
Those guys have become full marathoners. That's the difference. It's like with Mary K. She was a destroyer at the half marathon, but once she really started focusing on the marathon, there are girls like Jipchirchir, Kipkiruri who are way faster. However, Mary K can still race fast at that level and finish top 3
His 60 second time is slow, and adola was just out there working on speed. His focus is london, and he still came in second.
