I figured if they were specifically training for it then Bolt to win it.

If it was out of the box, tomorrow morning - not so sure.

In 2003 Farah ran 800m in 1:48.69 (the WR, set in 2012 is 1:40.91). Undoubtedly he is much quicker now, despite his intended focus on longer-distance. he's just run 1500m in 3:28.81 (WR is 3:26.00 - set in '98 by El Guerrouj).

Bolt has done 200m in 19.19 (4yrs ago). He ran 400m in 45.28 in 2007.

Thats probably a good question for the A League of Their Own team. They love both of them after all

Might tweet it to Corden

I think it would be close. Anything over 600 tilts in favour of Mo, anything shorter gifts it to Bolt. Standing start, no blocks.

Gaz, it's been all over the radio today, save the tweet. Same manager represents both. They're talking of a charity race.

Won't be Bolt, anything over 400mtrs would kill him
