Tell me how many people in this single race have a faster PR in the 1500 than Farah.
What events is Farah doing at the Olympics? What 1500 runner would choose to do the 5K and 10K if the 1500 was their best event?
I love when people provide evidence against their OWN arguments. Like I said, Farah has the 2nd or 3rd faster PR. Only Kiprop is faster.
The rest of your post is irrelevant. The events he decides to do at the Olympics has little to do with what his best event is. The events he decides to do depends on his best chances to win gold in sit and kick races. That's Farah's #1 concern - to win medals NOT to do his best event and NOT to compete against the best.
Plenty of runners choose their best chance to medal instead of their best event. If you don't know this, then you need to watch the sport more.
3:28 is better than anything Farah has run at other distances.
