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.
