This is honestly the best post I've seen on this site. Mo is the greatest middle distance runner ever and his career achievements speak for themselves. All the middle distance WRs were set during the doping era and are now untouchable.

Best distance runner of last 6 years doesn't come close to any of the distance world record's except for the 2 mile indoors. Consistently beats everyone that the distance powerhouses of Kenya and Ethiopia can put out. He is accused of being dirty, but he will be tested so frequently as a current Olympic champ etc. He can't be that dirty or he'd attempt 12:35 surely?
The 800m record is new and Kiprop is breathing down El G's neck for the 1500m record. WTF are you talking about[/quote]
Hmmmmm. That is a good point.
I think Mo has elevated cortisol levels from the stress of Tania yelling at everyone.
Tania tiger kitten is causing added stress. That is why Mo likes to go to Sabadell to relax.
rjm33, it is not a good point. The middle distance records being within reach of the current top middle distance runners has little to do with why the best distance runners currently, including the best of the current crop, cannot touch the distance records (3k-10k for those of you that need clarification).
The only way we can compare 1:40.9 to a 5k time is by looking at the world record's and the times that the greatest of all time have run. It may be that 1:40.9 is equivalent to 12:42 or so. We don't know. It's irrelevant.
And you continue to fascinate me with your strange ramblings.
