“Usain Bolt is a man for the summer but Kenenisa Bekele is a man for all seasons”

I say, Wooow to it! This would be the best athletic event of all time. This sort of thing never happened before. A great idea! 600m race through a main city high street would capture the imagination of the viewing public. Kids races, street party- lets make a day of it. This is what athletics should be about- no timings- just a RACE. ..

I’d expect a 600m race to be very close if Bekele is that quick! And have no reason to doubt that he is as anyone who can run 52-54 sec at the end of 5000m has to be pretty sharp.

Bolt is fast, but ain’t the fastest man on Earth. He’s the fastest man on Earth… over pretty much anything under 400 metres.

Anyways, may the best man win…
