There is no reason whatsoever that Farah couldn't have tried to PR in the seasons with no WC or OG, or even in the same seasons. Plenty of greats have run fast circuit races as well as championships.
This attitude is why Farah will never be in the conversation for GOAT among knowledgeable people. (Of course some Brit fanboys and Mo's wife will still make the losing argument.)
