I like to believe that hard work will always prevail, that talent doesn’t exist, that as long as you put your mind to it you will succeed. But sometimes you need to accept that some people are just better, as shown here by Kenenisa Bekele’s superiority over the best half marathoner of all time, Zersenay Tadese.
I don’t quite understand how he can run a 4:05 mile at the end of a 10,000 metre race. His kick is quite astonishing. How much bigger would Tadese’s (already considerable) trophy cabinet be had he not competed in the same era as Bekele?
