you are still getting nowhere
amsterdam '06 was run in 2"08'52 & in '08 in 2"07'52
both much slower than sammy's gold run
& i have seen amsterdam races at least 1/2 dozen times on tv
it is a pancake flat, "easy" course for elites - the only impediment is some exposed areas adjacent to the canals where wind can be a factor, but that wind doesn't happen every year
if geoffey/moses/kipsang or makau ran it in their current form on windless day, i'd be shocked at anything slower than low-2"03
