Battle of 19 Year Olds. Is Bekele Chunky? Coburn Favorite for Gold? College Track in Trouble?

4 months ago

The battle of the 19 year-olds is here: Jakob Ingebrigtsen v Jacob Kiplimo over 3000m in Rome. The US is not sending a team to the World Half, but there is hope for Foot Locker XC and DII XC. Minnesota Track and Field is cut and Leroy Burrell sends out a warning. Is Emma Coburn the gold medal favorite? What about Centrowitz's Olympic chances? Can Jakob or Potato Tim (Cheruiyot) run 3:25? Is Bekele chunky?
