Make sense? So 1:44 might very well be his "real" 800m time.
he has run 3'32, which given that it didn't have great pacing, maya been worth 3'31 - & that wouda been flat-out - remember he lost 2 of his 3 1500s
plenty of guys who have run 3'31 have 1'44pbs
therefore their endurance is as good as kennster's
you believe that ???
( try baala with extreme of 1'43.1pb & 3'28.9 !!! )
I'm not sure if you understood what I wrote. I meant that maybe Bekele was stating his best RECORDED times. Maybe he hasn't even run a full out 800m. I would not be surprised if Bekele's real capability was closer to 1:44.
Those 3:31 guys that you mention probably have much faster 400m times than Bekele. Definitely faster than what you or Bekele said - 51 or 49. But Bekele makes up for it with his superior endurance.
Baala is like a 46 400m type.
