I have been aware of Bekele for a few years now, after racing him in 2001 in a 3000 meter. He ran 7.30 for a new World junior world record and I did 7.40 for the Norwegian record in Brussels.
If he runs the 5000 meter it will be a great race. I still believe Chebii is just slightly faster in the finish (believe it or not) if he is healthy, but he has been having problems with a calf injury recently. Either way, the level on the long distances are better this year than in some time…
I am training every other day now, just to keep my body going abit. Doing strides and easy runs 🙂
