Kipchoge is dialed in, ready for dominate.

would love to see someone (Mo? Kitata?) give him a challenge.. but how? lmfao.

Eliud (2:02:XX) vs Wilson (2:09:XX), London 2019.

This is why I love Kenyan runners. Their entire culture brings that warrior spirit to running.

Wilson is retiring this year. He knows he's not in Eliud shape. But, he goes out with Eliud for the first half at a crazy fast pace (1:01 insanity), and still ends up finishing the race with a solid time. He could have hung back with a different group, probably finished with a 2:06 with the shape he's in. Instead he goes out hard & takes his beating with honor.

Damn those stats are crazy. He been maintaining that 20km/h throughout the race. Knowing how fast 20km/h is on the treadmill to maintain that is just beyond belief.

So many gems to find in those stats:
So after having run 20K at ~14:45 per 5K  , Kiphoge goes 'meh, i feel fresh, let's pick it up' and he does 20->25 in 14:14 , a time which until 1939 was WR.
Kipsang's slowest km pace was 3'18'' , i dont think i'll ever in my life be be able to do 3'18'' in an all out 1km sprint lol.
Kiphoge never went above 3m/km.
Inhuman.
woot

i have absolutely no ability to comprehend it.

i've run a 2:49 km, all out effort. it gives me no perspective of how someone can hold 2:5X per km, for 42+ km.
