So there you have it. Nike admits what we've been saying all day. Humans are nowhere near running a sub-2 attempt without assistance.
Nowhere does Germano say anything about runners receiving assistance. Until Nike explicitly states what the course will be, you can surmise, but making up facts doesn't help at all. Especially with your credibility as a legitimate news source.
Try reporting on fact. Then condemn when you have the details.
