I got a laugh out of the part where they mentioned Lagat:
The most jarring part of Solinsky's rise -- and it's been a steady ascent for nearly a decade -- is that he looks not at all like a distance runner. (Many of the best U.S. runners in history resembled East Africans in stature and, in some cases, upbringing. Shorter: Built like a Kenyan. Bill Rodgers: Built like a Kenyan. Dathan Ritzenhein: Built like a Kenyan. Ryan Hall: Built like a Kenyan and raised at altitude. Lagat: Was actually a Kenyan).
