Distance races at Championship Meets have become 400m sprints, So this should actually favor distance runners as well.
Real track and field fans knows that Bolt will dominate sprints 100/200/4x100. instead 800, 1500, and 5000 are open...

Sprints sell, distances smell
Sad if you think that Bondarenko and Barshim are in 2.4x form and threating Sotomayor 2.45 WR. Even Eric Kinard is threating Charles Austin 2.40 (American record)

Hard surfaces favor distance runners as well, it just beats up your legs, but you only feel it after race. (Not great for training.) Also, the new Mondo tracks soften up over time and when it is hot.
