    And once again, the king has spoken! Kipchoge had 3 Ethiopians shadowing him for the last 5 miles, until he broke them with a mile and a half to go for 2:02:37.

    Farah misses the European record with 2:05:39. He must have really struggled at the end. Lost exactly a minute on Kipchoge over the last 2.195k.

    Eliud Kipchoge was awesome. He had 4 then 3 Ethiopians with him until he turned on the Afterburners with about 2km to go. 2nd fastest time in history. Amazing performance. Equal to Usain Bolt as the GOAT? Has to be close in my book.

    Has to win a 2nd Olympic gold to be considered equivalent to Bolt, IMO. Two other men have 2 marathon golds, and Bolt three-peated in 2 Olympic events in addition to world records.

    If you're using the longevity argument, you need recall that Kipchoge won a world title on the track back when Usain was still just a (very!) promising junior athlete.
