Furthermore, we have such depth of talent at 800m and 1500m right now.
Just the 1500, really. We have two guys who could potentially be a threat in the 800, unless Webb gets back into 1:43 shape; I wouldn't call that "depth".
On the world stage, as Rudisha runs away into the 1:40 sunset, the current American 800 guys haven't even caught up to Johnny Gray, Earl Jones, etc. The 800 is an incredibly weak event for US men right now, all things considered.
