Bernard Lagat.... SELFISH for doubling in 3k AND 5k. Give your 5k Spot to Solinsky!
I never, not once, thought of Bernard Lagat as a selfish athlete. He always seems gracious, incredibly fast, and seemingly a good mentor to the younger guys.

But seeing that he is going for the double this weekend, shutting out Solinsky from a Championship style meet, is, honestly, a bit mind boggling.

I lost a lot of respect for Lagat as a mentor. Even if he was chosen for both, he should have respectfully declined the 5k spot, and suggested that they chose Solinsky. The dude is like 35, had a great season, and is still going to race the 3k. Move over and don't be selfish, Bernard. Let Chris get some experience. It will not diminish your own one bit, and in fact, add to your legacy as a great sportsman and gentleman. At this stage in your career, that should matter to you.

I wish there was a way to stir the pot on this and protest somehow.
