Those prior calculations are off the mark because the duration factor is neglected.
A fairer comparison would be asking how far could the 65y record holder run in some equal time period as the respective open division record holder? How far for example would Turnbull have run in 2:04.00? Changes the ratios a bit and shows speed and stamina are linked fairly closely across all age-groups.
