He didn’t run as fast as Hall because he always ran Boston and New York (both of which he won). His 2:08 in Boston 2014 is comparable with Hall’s London and Boston tailwind times. WTF is a “blazer” - you need to stop watching so much Without Limits. Meb was better, period.
But Hall was still awesome.
Your response does make any sense to me. This is not a post about Meb, and I have a lot of respect for Meb, but he was not a faster runner than Hall. He was definitely the better racer, because hall focused on fast times more than he did wanting to win races.
Hall ran 2:04 in Boston, 2:06 in London, and 2:08 in Chicago. Meb's fastest time was 2:08
I love both runners, but I was just making a point that the reason why Meb never ran London or Berlin is because he wasn't fast enough to run those races, and he knew that, so he stayed in his lane.
