At 18 - best be quiet I think. The kids are extremely talented right now, like never before. But I don't see the advertising creds there until they have achieved for a few years.

At 18 he set a world record for an aged distance. Would be hard to do that at 25. It's also 3K vs 4k. So he put up the best junior time ever. Being a junior, doing a junior thing.

The elite world record for a K further is about a full MPH faster.

Again, this does nothing to diminish the accomplishment. It just needs to be held in context.
