    Quite fair in general. However, putting El G into the list at #22(?) is a bit pointless.
    I would take it that 2 and 3 K are not taken as "distance" races. (the 2K record will probably last quite a few years, and his attempt to run down Komen's 3K WR was not bad). El G had some good 5 Ks, including Oly win, but never was a serious 10 K man. One may object to Keino in the same vein, but he was a serious 5K runner
    at the same time as the 1500m, and had some good runs (Leningrad - 1968?) in the 10 K.

      Most dominating Olympic distance runner in my book is Herb Elliott....just wish his career had been longer....1960, his only OG, and his career was only a few years.
