Samuel Tefera 1500m World Indoor Record Podcast: Guest Jordan Williamsz + Lance Armstrong at Austin Marathon, Dog Goes Sub 4, Road 5k Records

February 20, 2019

Samuel Tefera broke Hicham El Guerrouj’s world record in a thrilling race and then barely celebrated.

We break it down and are joined (79 minute mark) by Tefera’s rabbit in the mile record, Jordan Wiliamsz who reveals he never spoke to Tefera before or after the race.

Article continues below player.

We had a ton of other serious action including road 5k world records and not so serious action like Anthony Famiglietti going sub 4 in the mile at age 40 thanks to a dog and Lance Armstrong and another drug cheat showing up at the Austin Marathon.

Plus live commentary and reaction of Jakob Ingebrigtsen’s 1500m win in Dusseldorf over Tefera on Wednesday.
