"People care about...who wins the race"
Yes. Kinda the whole point of these championships races.
"What I saw was Farah winning with superior tactics, NOT superior ability"
Huh. Kinda the same thing, really, when you are trying to win a race. Mo is an absolutely uncanny racer. It is a treat to watch him be both smarter and tougher than anyone else in the race.
And let's cut to the chase:
Mo Farah has won every important final in the two most important competitions in the last 2 years: the Olympics and the World Champs. Period.
Has every single runner in every single race all of sudden become the stupidest bunch of racers ever and handed Mo the medals with a whimper and a shrug?
He has defeated all comers in the most important races.
Parse it any way you want: dumb Kenyans, dumb Rupp, dumb coaches, dumb Ethiopians, dumb rest of the world, etc; the
dumb basic fact remains he beat every single last one of them.
Give the man his due instead of second guessing the entire collective distance running talent of the planet.
