Farah wins. Much easier for him to go down in distance than Bolt to go up.

I think Bolt will stay just close enough to outkick Mo at the finish

It depends on how the race plays out; if it's a slow, sitľandľkick type deal (60 second first 400m or slower) I think that Bolt's superior speed might win the day.

Farah wins hands down. It wouldn't even be a competition.

Yes, 600m favors Farah who can obviously run a good 800 and I think any world class 800 runner can beat any 400 runner in a 600.

But they may toy with each other and try and tie.
If they are serious, Bolt would have to build a big lead.
If Mo is close with 100 to go, he's got him.
Bolt will be breathing too hard and feeling too uncomfortable to show his speed in the end.

Bolt runs a WR. Bet on it.

I'm very surprised Bolt is doing this.

Johnny Gray's 1:12.81 is probably a little soft. Maybe it's within Bolt's reach with some specific training?

I think Mo wins but there is a high chance that one pulls out with an injury

IF this happens, which is unlikely, where and when will it be?

The best option would be to tack it onto another track meet to save costs. It doesn't need to be official as neither is going to be threatening any records

after moscow, obviously. hopefully soon after moscow, although farah will likely take a little time off before beginning marathon training. dunno bolt's schedule for post-worlds, but it wouldn't be tough for him to fit in a 600m.

At the end of the day, it's just not going to be close. End of story. Mo would beat bolt in any distance over 400 if they raced right now, and any distance period given eight weeks to train for it.

Surely you must be joking, Mr. L?
Bolt is a generational talent who could threaten 3:30i in the 1500 if he trained.

I wouldn't be surprised if Bolt crushes this. His pride is on the line. He could run away from Mo and hold on.

He could be out in 44.XX and just try and not die. Could work!

I ran performance adjusted curve fitting heuristics on the track coefficient ratio:
500:
Farah 60.55
Bolt 59.97

600:
Farah 1:15.23
Bolt 1:16.86
