I'm happy about Nicholas performance, because at the moment he has very little training, due to personal problems (his wife was very sick for long time during winter, and he assisted her in the Hospital without really training) and also to the situation that confused him before changing citizenship. Now, he is officially Qatari, and can run in World Championships. The race in Doha was only a test that I needed for checking his current base. He was with the leading group for 1600m (obviously too fast, you can see the splits that I wrote in another post), and was not able to stay at the same pace after that distance. He ran 5:07.4 at 2000, then 6:14.8 (1:07.4), 7:20.6 (1:05.8) and 30.3 last 200m, showing that he needed to recover after the fast start, but had yet good energies in the final. I think that at the moment, running at even pace of 2:35, he can run 7:45 that is not so bad.
His next race will be 5000m in Hengelo, where his goal is to run in 13:15. I think that in two full months of training with the correct motivation he can repeat this time twice, running about in 26:30 / 26:40 for World Championships. And after, we look at HM Championships...
