We have left wonderful Denmark and the IAAF/ Mikkeller World Cross Country Championships.
We recap the XC Champs. The Kenyan men underperformed again, the American men and women were pretty bad, and Team LetsRun got pulled from the course.
Did the champs meet their high expectations? What did the boys think of Aarhus, Denmark, and the course? What did they learn from agents in the bars? What will happen to the steeplechase next year in the Diamond League?
Can Joshua Cheptegei stop Mo Farah at 10,000?
