Who, who, who, who and who?
Sorry but that’s how I feel
Rhonex Kipruto is kinda a big deal.
I’ve honestly never heard of him. And I’m a bigger running fan than 99.4% of the population
Unless you've been stuck in a cave for the last year and half. I don't know how you can claim to be a big running fan and not know who he is.
Okay, I’ve read up on him. Looks like he’s won in the U20 class, which I only pay passing attention to. Apart from that, he’s really done nothing on the senior circuit.
Kosgei looks like she’s had more success, but looks to be exclusively a marathon runner. I tend to pay more attention to track runners. On the marathon side, there just seems to be a parade of anonymous African runners who cycle in and out of the winners circle. With one or two more major victories I probably would have started to take note
Point is, if an avid fan has trouble recognizing these names, the casual fan has no hope
You may be a “running fan,” but it’s clear you’re not an avid fan of elite distance running.
