Why did you leave out the 800 for both men & women? Isn't the 800 an endurance event? Last time I checked it's not listed as a sprint. Additionally, why did you also leave out the women's steeplechase? There's been some top performing women in that event sanctioned for hematological anomalies.
This is a clown question. The answer should be obvious. The 800m is not an endurance event and does not benefit proportionally the same from EPO as say the 1500m or 3000m.
There was NO WOMEN'S Steeple before 1990. Those are the periods he is comparing.
BTW, it is "Inquiring" minds want to know. Two nouns together makes no sense.
EPO would benefit the 800m runner by making the athlete fitter and able to push harder on the second lap.
