I never said he isn't a good runner. It's a great time and a good run. I'm sure he is 1:43/1:44 material. If not faster.

The point I'm making is where is Rudisha, where is Bosse on that 600m indoor list? It has not been attacked by the big names over the years and so is weak. The WR should be in the 1:13.5 region.

I don't remember Korir doing that well against the big boys when it mattered neither.


Really? Korir goes from 1:46.9 in 2016 to 1:43.10 in 2017. He wins NCAAs (indoor and outdoor), Kenyan trials, Monaco...

...and because he only makes it to the WC semi final in mid August, you are unimpressed. How fast are you?

BTW: Bosse's indoor best is 1:15.63. He only has a 400m best of 47.54. (Korir' best is 44.53 and Saruni's best is 45.69).


I don't think Bosse has run a 600 more than once, and that was 5 years ago when he was a teen. A better indicator is the outdoor 600 that he ran a couple of years ago....in 1:13.21!!! Now if Saruni ran faster than that indoors I would be impressed. Bosse has focused more on the 1000 than the 600 anyways which is why he has the speed endurance.
