What a great analysis. So his friends were right, he does hold the fatty world record. 😉

To me, this just goes to show that you don't have to let stereotypes limit you. Sure, he's bigger than the stereotypical world class 10,000m runner. That didn't stop him from becoming the 29th fastest 10,000m runner in history in his first attempt at the distance. Get him into a European circuit event where he can get pulled along by another sub-27 caliber runner and doesn't have to drop a 1:55 final 800 and we might see him quickly climb into the top 20, maybe even top 15 all time list.
