Everyone keeps quoting the 45.50 400m rudisha ran... But elsewhere online (not Iaaf's website and im too tired to check) he has a best time of 45.19. the video of part of the race shown during a Kenyan interview on YouTube (again, too tired to find it) shows it at a low-key meet where second place probably ran 47... Anyone who truly believes that Rudisha couldn't go sub 45 if he raced it more often with serious competition is out of their minds. He has probably ran at most 3 400s in the last Olympic quadrennial...

Are we talking about simultaneous ability or PRs over a lifetime? Think about it.
