So as many may know Geoffrey Mutai of Kenya ran a 2:03:02 marathon at Boston about a week ago. This time crushed Haile Gebreselassie’s current world record of 2:03:59 that was set in 2008 in Berlin. According to the IAAF due to the descent and point to point profile of the Boston course Mutai’s time is ineligible for the world record. Whether you are for or against this those times are damn impressive! So the question is what does the current official record holder, Gebreselassie, think of this? Well as expected knowing that Haile is a stand up guy here’s his verdict thanks to My San Antonio.com, click on the photo to link the article.
