yeah it boggles my mind to think about this. the best 800 guys are so specialized now...

Souleiman was WC bronze @ 800m and has ran 7:39i. i suspect he could run with the big boys @ 5K.

As far as current American's Torrence isn't close to being a 800 medalist, but 1:45 and 13:16 isn't shabby. Sowinski/Bang/Nick in a 5K is not happening hahaha!

If so, I'd love to know who.
