The Kenyans are truly great, but I think the injury was actually an "injury" -
i.e. part of the psychological warfare.
I don't think he faked the injury. I saw him hobble off the trials myself and knew something was wrong before the media picked it up. But the psychological part came with that yarn about not having trained 40+ days. And when he told LetsRun "I'm so worried" in that video interview, I got suspicious. What Kenyan publicises his weaknesses to the media like that? He played you guys like a violin.
