just wikipedia El G, Kenny B, Geb and Farah and you'll see a lot of world records and gold medals. it's amazing to look at what these guys have accomplished
To summarize my opinion: Farah is a good tactician and wins more than anyone when it oc***s. he's amazing at winning. I know that's the point, but i'd rather watch kenenisa, el g, komen, or geb races that Farah races. I like how geb and kenny won tons of races but also went after times. it would have been easier on their bodies
Farah can still be a marathon stud if he wants to be. He's only run one.
I'm no expert, but i'm guessing farah could run under 59 for the half if he gave it a good build up
that being said, i like geb more than farah as GOAT. Geb knew how to win AND run fast. he won like 9 marathons and had the world record. he also had some other world records and always seemed to go for it, whether it was a 1500m or some 20k or 1-hour time trial. look at his resume just based on times. all faster than farah except the 1500m. jesus
12:39 (his indoor, 12:50 pr is faster than Mobot's outdoor)
44:24 (10 miles)
geb has a better resume based on times, but it's about winning the damn race says bowerman, and farah is exceptional at winning the important races. look at 2011-current. lots of gold medals
kenenisa has so many golds too, many from XC, which i like. it's kind of more impressive than farah having run a 3:28. also, he ran very fast very often. he ran 26:20 in 2004, then 26:17 WR in 2005 then a 26:25 in oregon 3 years after his WR. what do you guys think?
if farah ran 12:3x or 26:2x i would be willing to call him the GOAT. and i don't like him
he wins the 5/10 at the olympics next year, he will certainly be the GOAT at winning championships. no one would come close, would they?
they were/are probably all dopers. let's be real.
