Doesn't this line of thinking seem completely illogical - "If he can run 7 seconds faster than his current PR in the marathon, he'll be the GOAT. But if he can't manage 7 seconds better, it's still up for debate."
Oh gosh oh gee wrote:
If Bekele simultaneously holds the 5000, 10000, and marathon records, will that make him the undebateable GOAT?
If Kimetto ran 2:03:04 that day, would Bekele already be the GOAT?
A definitive distinction of GOAT is determined based on 7 seconds in one marathon, regardless of the rest of his CAREER accomplishments? It's purely arbitrary. He's the GOAT already.
