Joining us this week is a pair of distance running heavyweights in the shape of double Commonwealth champion Joshua Cheptegei and Olympic silver medalist, Paul Chelimo.

This week, we’re going the distance with two kings of the five and ten thousand metres. Joining us is the Commonwealth champion for both, Uganda’s Joshua Cheptegei, and the Olympic 5000 metres silver medalist, Paul Chelimo from the United States.

Strong words on the future of long distance running - find out why Joshua and Paul are against plans to remove their events from the Diamond League.

Who would rather not pose for selfies? Will either man reveal where they keep their medals? Plus, why Kenyan-born Paul signed up for the US Army.
