RE: Please Name Some 800m to 10000m Olympic Gold Medallists / World Record Holders Who Never Did 2hr / 20 Mile Runs.
I said best to remove the 800 guys, not the 1500.

I have a copy of Saids National Training program for 800 - 5000m guys and there are no 2hrs runs listed, but I'm no saying he never did them himself.

List of 800m winners since 1896 (note the some have won twice)that included 20 mile 2 hr runs in training

Edwin Flack NO
Alfred Tysoe NO
James Lightbody NO
Mel Sheppard NO
Ted Meredith NO
Albert Hill YES, but not many
Douglas Lowe NO
Tom Hampson NO
John Woodruff NO
Mal Whitfield NO
Tom Courtney NO
Peter Snell YES many
Ralph Doubell NO (his track sessions lasted 2hrs)
Dave Wottle NO
Alberto Juantorena NO
Steve Ovett Maybe a few, but mostly did double 10 miler days
Joaquim Cruz NO
Paul Ereng NO
William Tanui NO
Vebjørn Rodal NO
Nils Schumann NO
Yuriy Borzakovskiy NO

As I said, best to leave the 800m guys out of this question.
