RE: What are 400/800 guys doing that 800/1500 guys aren't?
Rudisha's got the 800m WW. To me the question is whether he could get closer to the record in the 400 or the 1500. I tend to think it'd be pretty close, hence I'd call him a 800 specialist. 45.5 is about as far from the 400 WW as a 3:40 is from the 1500m WW. The 45.2 quoted a couple posts ago would be a little closer but it's still not obvious to me that he couldn't run the 1500m equivalent.
