Is anyone going to really care if Farah wins a DL 5k in 12:48?
I would. I think a lot of people on here would.
It's not unreasonable to want to know how fast a runner can cover their best distance in their prime. The situation with Mo is like meeting a guy and finding out he runs 5k's pretty seriously only to ask "How fast are you?" and get for an answer "I don't really know, I never bothered racing one for time."
