ARE YOU SERIOUS or you just started keeping up with track and field. The women's track distance records are much softer then the men's. The men WR's are very close to what many think are the current human limits from the 1500m to 10000m, not saying that can't be broken- just that they are much harder to break then the women's WR's.
Mo Farah has never time trialed 3000m, 5000m, and 10000m since he erupted on the scene. No doubt he can significantly improve on his 7:38 3000m, 5000m, and 10000m if he tried a time trail like his 1500m.
Still doesn't change the fact that this man became one of the fastest 1500m runners ever and will step up to the marathon less then 10 months later, like the Chinese women!
So why is Mo Farah against chasing fast times,
"I won't be after any WR I choose to focus on medals and representing my country".
WTF? Doesn't he want to be consider the greatest of all-time like most SUPER elite athletes? So what's the deal?
