    You may be right, but he ran a 58:33 half marathon and has been getting better, so I expect him to be the next marathon superstar regardless of what his real age may be.

    Still pretty different because they had prolonged track careers. Compared to the others, he has not been a dominant track runner that has eventually turned to the roads. If anything, his reputation is from the roads.
