Last year in Berlin, Kenenisa Bekele ran 2:03:03. Then, he fell at the Dubai Marathon and was not fully fit for racing in London. What was up with Kenenisa was on the lips of many? Well, one thing to remember, Kenenisa Bekele wants to win races, and when he is really fit, he provides exciting races and can definitely break the WR. But, dear readers, can he beat Eliud Kipchoge? Can he beat Wilson KIpsang once again?
We will have to wait a few days to see how this battle of the marathon pans out.
Here is the pre Berlin interview by Andy Edwards, of Race News Service of the one and only Kenenisa Bekele. Bekele owns the WRs for the 5000m and 10,000m. Can he get the marathon title? He wants it, but will Eliud Kipchoge stop him?
