I disagree. There's no precedent for an athlete going undefeated at that range of distances and pulling off a 1500/10000 double or its equivalent at a global championship. The equivalent for Muhammad would a 100H/400H double with as many 100H races as 400H races. The equivalent for Usain Bolt would have been a 100/400 double with a few 400 races on the DL circuit.
