RE: What are 400/800 guys doing that 800/1500 guys aren't?

Guys like Symmonds could never go faster than 47 in an open 400 and guys like Rudisha would struggle at 1500m.

Based on what? Rudisha does some serious mileage. I think someone said he trains with Kipchoge. Rudisha in peak 800m shape could probably run around 3:30 and 13:45-14:10. He is just a better, speedier version of Sebastian Coe who was a 45/46, 3:29, 13:30 guy. If Rudisha actually trained for distance, then he would be even faster at the distance events (and slower at the sprinting).
