Double Shadow

August 5, 2009

I was looking at the Berlin page on the IAAF site and noticed that Jaouad Gharib (2003 and 2005 World Marathon Champ) of Morocco is entered in World Championships Marathon.  The only reason why this was a little bit of a shock is because I remembered reading that he’s also doing the NYC half-marathon on August 16th.  Seems like a quick turnaround, a 1/2 in NYC one weekend and then a full marathon the next weekend in Berlin.  I don’t think that schedule would fly under most national federations, including Athletics Kenya.
