What is “not a fair comparison?”  Anyway, just how much do those “top people” (or their PR's) mean to the casual observer or even the typical running fan?  Conversely, winning (or nearly winning) BAA would create MUCH bigger splash than 3rd or even 2nd at London.  The former would likely make SportsCenter, the latter would still be buried behind the front page of the sports section of Anytown USA's fishwrap.  Stats are not “sexy,” they are dorky — winning is what is “sexy.”  8)
