Seb Coe made the right decision on Thursday to relinquish his Nike Ambassador role. In doing so, the new President showed that he can put the sport infront of his personal needs. More symbolic than anything else, Seb Coe is showing that he must be above all reproach as he reacts to upcoming IAAF allegations and works to rebuild the reputation of the sport.
Some will be interested to know that Coe's announcement of ending his relationship with Nike as an ambassador was the largest tweet on @runblogrun's twitter feed in past week. In fact, it was double of any other tweet for the week.

I saw Geoffrey Kamworor first when he won the IAAF World Half Marathon Champs in March 2014. Then, Mr. Kamworor won the World Cross Country in March 2015. His silver medal in the 10,000 meters, in Beijing was his second battle with Mo Farah, after the 10,000 meters at the Pre Classic.
Kamworor is a tough competitor and well conditioned racer. The half marathon may be his perfect distance.
