Apart from wearing a pair of Nike`s latest controversial shoes, he was accompanied race long by a phalanx of elite pace makers forming a wind shield throughout the 26.2 mile , completely flat course.
Added to this, banks of support vehicles again cut out any wind from the equation, and of course he had no rivals to have to battle against en-route.
The athletic authorities do not get much right these days but in denying the run world record status they, in my view, are entirely correct.
