Archives // Hicham El Guerrouj

Monday 10th January 2011

I don’t run the mile, but if I did I’d want to run it like this. Absolutely stunning athleticism from Hicham El Guerrouj and Noah Ngeny, both of whom break the former world record. Just like the commentator says, it is so refreshing to see two men racing each other for a record in an era when world records are so often run as solo time trials. I could watch this all day.
