  • World Champions, Who will they be?

    With the season over halfway through some events are looking wide open and exciting for the WC in Paris.
    Take the 5km for instance it could be anyone of Bekele, Chebi, Cherono, Guerrouj, or even Geb.

    Equally the 100, no one has even won two major races in a row yet have they?

    here are some bold predictions

    100m B Williams
    200m S Crawford
    400m ???
    800m Borzakofsky
    1500m B Lagat
    5km Chebii
    10km Bekele

    P>S excuse my ignorance of field, and womans track

    Maybe you can choose some of the competitors from the World Youth meet to compete in the senior WC's. Take a look at some of the Kenyan and Ethiopian "15 to 17 year olds." Hoo-hah. They send their B squad guys to race kids! The IAAF tried to keep their pics to a minimum to avoid embarrassment, apparently!

    Bekele is just a kid! http://www.iaaf.org/WYC03/multimedia/ty ... age=6.htmx

    And how about Mohammed Al-Salhi of Saudi Arabia, the 800m winner? When was he 17? Three or four years ago? He's older than Burley ... hell-arious. There's also another picture of that kid Bekele on the same page: http://www.iaaf.org/WYC03/multimedia/ty ... age=2.htmx

    How about 3k winner Augustine Choge of Kenya? He's 16 or 17? On what calendar? http://www.iaaf.org/WYC03/multimedia/ty ... age=1.htmx

    Yeah, the Kenyans and Ethiopians have a lot of talent. But sending some of their "B" level adult runners along with (maybe) a few legit kids from those regions to race real kids from the rest of the world is classless. But in today's politically correct climate, to point this out makes one the villain, while the real villains can thumb their noses.
