Who won the Millrose mile today?
Who did he beat, apart from his pacemaker? And this ranks up there with World Championship or Olympic titles - of which he has none? And how many of these titles does Farah have?
He beat the Kenyan indoor mile record holder (2nd fastest indoor mile until yesterday). He beat the Olympic Games 800m bronze medalist. He beat multiple time Olympic 1500m medalist. He beat the NCAA 1500m record holder.
The top 5 fastest miles of the indoor season were recorded yesterday.
Who was missing? Tefera? Lewandowski?
Who is the big name that was not there yesterday?
Perhaps a better win than I was inclined to give him credit for but still nowhere near a major championship gold. Farah is one of the greatest championship runners ever. However talented, Kejelcha hadn't delivered on that front - yet. He may never. And beating the best in competition is what championship racing - as distinct from running - is about. Times will always be bettered, but you can never change the order of gold, silver and bronze. And Farah has golds that Kejelcha can still only dream of.
