This Sunday's showdown in Berlin looks like it will be unbelievable...
Haile Gebrselassie vs. Duncan Kibet.
I realize those names may not mean much to some... but they are a bit like:
Gretzky vs. Crosby
Manning vs. Brady
Tyson vs. Holyfield
Federer vs. Nadal
... none of those is quite right but you get my drift...
However, if those tantalizing comparisons aren't enough to interest you, read this entertaining breakdown of the duel from the Science of Sport. After reading it I was super-pumped to watch 2:03:?? of marathon running.
Questions that WILL be answered: Will the wily veteran, and world record holder, Gebrselassie, have the legs to hold off the hard charging, and younger Kibet? Will the World Record fall on the fastest course in the world?
So, if you are interested (and you must be by now) watch it on your computer (HERE).
Sunday - 12 AM PST, 3AM Eastern (ouch - sucks to be in the east!).
Universal Sports has not announced if it will be televising Mattias and I out at Buntzen, though at this stage it looks unlikely...Tweet this!
