Anyone know what these women's 400M times are?

Certainly neither has run anything but a distance race since achieving world class (Defar's shortest a 1500, Dibaba's a 2000), so any data would be from very young days, if it exists.

I suspect that with a month or two of speedwork, both of them would be able to hit the B standard or at least come real close to it, but I doubt that Sanya or Allyson could even sniff the 5000 B standard.

I wish they'd both had a crack at the 1500 in their prime :(

Wow... you think they could run a 52.35...that's fast. I was thinking somewhere around 54 secs.

Absolutely not. Sub-55 at best.
