Samuel Tefera 1500m World Record, Lance Armstrong at Austin Marathon, Guest Jordan Williamsz, + Road 5k World Records & Jakob Ingebrigtsen > Tefera

Samuel Tefera broke Hicham El Guerrouj's world record in a thrilling race and then barely celebrated. We break it down and are joined by Tefera's rabbit Jordan Wiliamsz at the end of the podcast. [79:00] Prior to that we have a ton of serious action including road 5k world records and not so serious action like Anthony Famiglietti going sub 4 in the mile at age 40 thanks to a dog and Lance Armstrong and another drug cheat showing up at the Austin Marathon. Plus live commentary and reaction of Jakob Ingebrigtsen's 1500m win in Dusseldorf over Tefera on Wednesday.
