RE: How strong is the half marathon WR? Could Kenny B beat it?
The key word here is could. Bekele could have gotten the marathon world record in berlin but did he? No. 2004-2009 bekele could have gotten the half record but would he have would depend on many factors. I've noticed the road racing seems to be a learned skill. You have stars like bekele that struggle in their first races before eventually winning with fast times. You have stars like farah being beaten. People like Kipchoge and Wanjuri who run fast in the roads from the get-go are rare.
