      zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz . . . wake me up when he does it on the track . . . sorry, road running is neither track nor field. I allow Marathons only because the IOC says so.

        You do realise how much more difficult it is to maintain a road pace than on the track? There aren't typically 400m marks on the roads, so one has to rely on nine 1km marks, instead of the 24 (possibly 49) one has on the track.

          he's a 26'35 guy who's taken 6s off his pb on the road in cold weather

          if anything, he's got to be thinking <26'30 this year ( last year was disappointing - he shouda got silver ), which isn't bad !!!

            I'm highly impressed - just as I am with great triathlon performances. But it still has nothing to do with Track & Field.

              I agree, Marlow. I would love to see all the distance runners, cross-country runners, and road runners be in a separate organization, and take all their numbers, and sponsors and media support with them.

                Nice try. Track runners may stay - the rest are free to go. :twisted:

                  Sorry bud, but the 1500 and over runners are moving to the new organization, with the rest of the distance runners. I hope you enjoy your pure and lonely existence... :wink:

                    I'll start a new web-site, and I'll call it . . . uh . . . letssprint . . . no . . . letsjump . . . nah . . . letsthrowandhurdle . . . um . . . oh, OK, you win. Distance runners, no matter what lame-brain OTHER running events they get themselves into, are a vital part of T&F, so yay for whatizname running a time slower than the REAL World Record!!

                      Amazing how slow the 10k road mark still is.

                      Zak Barie ran 27:43 back in 1984. And what is a superior time, Josphat Machuka's 27:52 from 1995 on the old difficult Bolder Boulder course at 5300 feet.

                        What's the fastest 10000m time that was run without a rabbit? How far was Kogo from *that* time? The front page news piece called his run "an awesome display of front running", after all.

                          I'm guessing Bekele's 26:49.57 to win the 2003 World Champs over Gebrselassie would be it. 30th fastest performance ever:

                            That is my favourite 10.000m race ever. The splits were unreal and the up-front comp was amazing.
