We will see.
Track and field is a timing sport. It's you against the clock. For me it's not normal that people idolize people who aren't at least top 10.
2:05 wouldn't even be a top 15 marathon performance for 2019 alone.
I'm not hard, I don't ask people to idolize only the World record holders.
But from my point of view, I think it would be more pertinent that people idolize runners who can at least have a shot at giving let's say the top 3 distance runners in the world a shot for their money in a race.
Like here's the thing : if you tell me that Walmsley has a chance to make Kipchoge or Bekele suffer and make Kipchoge or Bekele doubt himself then I will also start to "idolize" him.
