From the article:

“In track, in the 5,000 or 10,000, the Africans are so fast and dominant, it’s very hard to break in at the medal level,” Browne said. “But in the marathon, there’s just some neat opportunities, that if you can get yourself to a certain level of fitness, on that given day you can do what Bill Rogers and Frank Shorter and Alberto did.”

That’s a pretty big IF, isn’t it?
