    I believe Coe had a 45.6 relay split, off the top of my head

    Which is absurd. A damn good 100/200 male sprinter can approximate twice his 100 best in a 200. She has to be capable of at least 23 flat. If not then ......never mind. Not worth discussing and would get shut down anyway.

    Cram just looked more capable at 400m than Coe, that is what I saw. Here is Cram at his best.. simply unbeatable:

    maybe Ill adjust my theoretical potential Cram 400m time to 45 flat had he been a 400/800 guy.

    Wasn't Coe a 400/800 guy, with an emphasis on the 800, c. 1977, age 20/21?

    I dont remember anything like that. He was a first class student and his athletics did not consume 100% of his life. He was an 800m guy from the start. His WR 800m run in 1979, saw him run the final 400m totally alone cutting a full second off Juantorena's WR.

    Donovan Brazier just ran a 3:37 - 1500m at the Sunset Tour, showing some good endurance.

    Ferguson Rotich has excellent speed. Over the last 50 meters he looks faster than Rudisha and more like Konchellah and Ereng. I theorize he can go around 45.50 in the 400m if he trained for it.

    it could be argued that a great measure of an 800 runner's stamina—although there are few chances to express it—comes in a 4x2x2 relay, as in Yokohama.
