I'm pretty sure Bekele could run 26:55-27:10 at the moment. See how at the drinks stations in Berlin Kipsang would open massive gaps, but Bekele would quickly run these gaps down and Kipsang was running at sub-3k pace.
27:10 is 53 seconds slower than his WR.
If Bekele is in 27:10 shape at the same time as 2:03:03, then what could he have run for marathon back when he ran 26:17?
Do people here think that you can get a minute slower at 10K and still run a PB marathon? If not, you'll have to say that Bekele could have run low 2:02 or 2:01 back in the day.
I have no idea what it's like running at that level, or even how 10K shape differs from marathon shape firsthand. But to nearly run a marathon WR while being 53 sec slower at 10K seems a little crazy.
Maybe someone here who has run a fast marathon and 10K can share.
