    I can't think of anyone, male or female, who has ever demonstrated this sort of range in a single season. Not in the modern age anyway. Could El G have won a global 10,000 title when he was in peak 1500/mile form? I seriously doubt that Bekele or Turinesh Dibaba could have come close to the 1500/mile record.

    Said Aouita was ranked no. 1 from 800 to 10000, although not in the same season.

    Yeah, plenty of runners have shown range throughout their careers, but Hassan ran 1:05:45 in April, 3:55.30 and 4:12.33 in July and 30:17.62 yesterday. Has anyone else done something comparable in the same season?

    Walter George supposedly ran 59:29 for 12 miles in training (in either 1885 or 1886, I'm not 100% sure which). That time seems too good to be legit, which by extension means he had incredible range if it was legit; 59:29 is 65-minute pace for the half-marathon.

    Regardless of the validity of that particular time, George and many other early pros certainly did have good range, although of course they weren't particularly modern-age

    Hassan ran 3:59.09 for her last 1500 in the 10K: imagine a "tactical" race here which goes in slower time!

    How many women can break 4:00 for 1500 after a 8500 meter non-stop warm up?
