So why is Centro using this 800 as a "tune up" when other 1500 meter runners go out there and rip some legit 800 meter times? Sounds like a preemptive excuse for the inevitable bad performance.
Well just like Asbel Kiprop used the Paris 800m as tune up for Monaco where he wants to try and break the WR. That's what athletes do! They run off course as fast as they can - BUT it is not their best distance that's why it is tune up for their best distance.
