Renato Canova: What Bekele is in the marathon.

<I had the opportunity (and the fortune) to work with Kenenisa after Chicago 2014, till Dubai 2015. In spite of his physical problems, he was able to train with good continuity, even if with a volume far from an optimal volume for a top marathon, in fact in Dubai he was able to run under 2:04 but only a new injoury could stop him from running under that time. (...)
What he did in London Marathon was unbelievable: he ran 2:06 (1:27:23 the first 30km) with less than two months of specific training, after 11 months without any running activity. This means that he can have big chances for running 2:02, if his body structure can stay under control, and there are not injuries. (...)
When I worked with him, I discovered a person of great heart, very kind and friendly, with top personality and very deep values, and frankly: I found immediately a strong feeling with him as person. (...) These athletes have a strong presonality and so much confidence in themselves and they don't want to …

BMW BERLIN-MARATHON on September 25: Strong competition for Kipsang and Bekele

Wilson Kipsang and Kenenisa Bekele face strong competition

Expectations are high once again for a very fast race in the 43rd edition of the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON on September 25. All the omens are favourable with the recruitment of another high quality field which, given good weather conditions, points to another year of outstanding, world class times. The former world record holder Wilson Kipsang of Kenya and Ethiopia's Kenenisa Bekele have taken centre stage as the pre-race build-up has taken place, but alongside them are a clutch of athletes possessing the talent to be right up there with them. Seven runners in the field have best times under 2:06. At the head of the women's field is the double BMW BERLIN-MARATHON champion Aberu Kebede of Ethiopia. The BMW BERLIN-MARATHON is part of the Abbott World Marathon Majors Series and an IAAF Gold Label event, the highest category of road race awarded by the International Association of Athletics Federations.

RENATO CANOVA COMMENTA IL RECORD DI ALMAZ AYANA

DOPO 23 ANNI RIO RISCRIVE LA STORIA DEI 10000 METRI FEMMINILI All’apertura delle competizioni atletiche in Rio abbiamo potuto assistere alla più grande gara di sempre sulla distanza dei 10000 metri femminili, probabilmente ad una delle più grandi gare di mezzofondo di sempre ad ogni livello, paragonabile agli storici 800m di Rudisha a Londra 2012. In verità, da parte delle persone più vicine ad Almarz Ayana, che managerialmente è gestita dalla Global Sport di Jos Hermens e Valentijn Trouw, si attendeva il record del mondo, la cui realizzazione tuttavia dipendeva da almeno un paio di fattori, quali un aiuto di alto livello fin dall’inizio della gara, e le condizioni ambientali. L’esame dei passaggi del record di Wang Junxia, d’altra parte, faceva chiaramente supporre i limiti umani sulla distanza potessero essere ben lontani da quanto realizzato nel 1993 : una suddivisione delle due metà gara in 15’05” e 14’26” ottenuta al termine di una settimana con gare giornaliere a livello di record …
