RE: Deriba Merga - How Does He Do It? Who Else Has Had Done This?

Merga's results in the last four months, or so, are absolutely stunning. For those who haven't been following his races:

Houston Marathon, 01/18/2009: First Place, 2:07:52
Boston Marathon, 04/20/2009: First, Place, 2:08:42
MDS Nordion 10K (Ottawa), 05/23/2009: First Place, 27:24

Are other elites scratching their heads over this string of performances?

Can the historians among us identify other runners who have put together such a fantastic series of times and victories (and I don't mean a few 10Ks and 5Ks, but some marathons in the mix, as well)?


you forgot his 59:18 for the half marathon on february 20th 2009 at RAK where he was 3rd and came by 10k in 27:42 and 15k in a world record of 41:29, they took en route times in that race.
