Half marathon record doesn't matter. Has KB even run a sub hour half (i.e. a fast effort)?

Half marathon success of Geb just about cancels out KB's XC.

So in terms of road and track:

KB surely has track due to WRs and 8 outdoor titles vs Haile's 6

Only question is road. Surely it is ambiguous enough to say track gives him GOAT? Even so, I think KB can argue for road:

1st in Berlin (admittedly Olympic year...)
1st in Paris
3rd in London which was a talent supercollider off no training
Great North Run
2:05 low debut
Far superior time

I was a little in doubt before, but now I see the light.

All hail King Ken, distance GOAT!


KB's HM best is listed as 1:02:12. He just beat that twice.[/quote]

That time was from the IAAF site. alltime-athletics.com lists a 60:09 for KB from 2013.[/quote]

When he stomped Mo out at the Great North Run, right?
