Of course it’s entirely reasonable. It’s “pattern recognition”. A harsh result of history’s lessons & knowledge of the limitations of Anti-Doping. The backlash is also expected, because PATRIOTISM! As long the Mail did the same for Farah/some others in 2012 & 2016 (hint: few did)

It’s funny how fast “you’re just jealous” appears! That said, some of the commenters are right - if Farah won, *most* UK media would swoon in praise, with only a small group going near doping - just watch his answer about Aden, see how everyone wants to “move on”, “no more Qs”

So, is the suggestion now that all Kenyan Athletes are Doping? Just trying to understand, are you calling out Kipchage as a drug cheat?

No. Replace “suggestion now that all” with “question whether some”, for a start. All I am saying is that a degree of doubt doesn’t make someone a judge and jury. It’s necessary given what we do and don’t know about performance and antidoping

WEIRD for DM to question the performance of African elites with clean records since no male Brit (other than Mo?) has run under 2:07 in 35 years YET Paula Radcliffe's dominance fills them with nostalgia and remains untouchable in spite of "doping" and special Nikes

Carbon 'plates' are nothing new, Rebook & Adidas had shoes out in the 80's (Propulsion plate, Adidas called it), Zoot & Hoka have shoes with carbon plates in today. Kipchoges' gait was the same prior to the Vapourflys, he's mesmerising to watch!

In Matt Lawton's article, there seemed to be a direct comparison drawn between the runners of African descent and them Callum Hawkins and a comparison with his time and a previous WR holder - did that grate at all?

perhaps it's all innocuous. I like to believe that Aden was giving some advice on which 'cycling gear' Mo should wear, when out on his new bike.
