RE: Discussion: Track & Field News' 2012 World 1,500 Rankings: Kiplagat #1, Makhloufi #4, Centro #5, Manzano #9

Not all races--and not all victories--are equal.

Yes, Manzano started to fall apart after his Olympic silver, and Centro notched several impressive victories over him. But should those victories be accorded as much weight as the three championship races (U.S. indoor, Oly Trials, Olympics) in which Manzano did beat Centro?

You can talk about how statistics are important, and you can point to Centro's 4-3 record over Manzano, but those numbers only matter when you put them in their proper context.
