So we all saw the 1k in Houston where Murphy beat Centro. Since the men's 1500 was painfully so, and basically turned into a 600, I think it's safe to say Murphy would have won the 1500 gold had he run it.

The question is by how much?

He would probably have gotten shoved back by Makhloufi and the crowd and finished 9-10.

Seriously, Makhloufi, Kiprop, Willis, etc. have ALL beaten Centro. He didn't win because he had superior 1500m ability. He won because he ran intelligently and positioned himself in a way that it was impossible for even those with a better kick to pass him without running a detrimental amount of extra distance.[/quote]

But that's exactly why this is a semi-interesting question: Murphy has proven himself to be a master tactician as well.
