    That is why he is still #1 on my G.O.A.T. marathon list. He broke the WR barefooted (2:15:17) at Rome 1960 and won another Olympic gold (with shoes this time) in Tokyo 1964 in WR time (2:12:12). ...

    I wouldn't be surprised if it was one of the 2 party-poopers who openly mocked the attempt earlier in this thread. Neither one has been back since a few hours after Kipchoge's run, and now one of...

    That might very well be a w60+ AR for Joan. If Wikipedia's stats are up-to-date, she missed the w60+ WR by 52 seconds.

    The 160y track was not well-suited for Coghlan to try and break 4 minutes. He ran 4:01.39 on that track (and its tight turns) in 1993, before he tried again the next winter on a 200m track.

    Decades? Given what I saw in Berlin in back-to-back years, we might see it before the end of the next decade. Remember: Kipchoge took a minute and 18 seconds off the previous WR. And what was...

    If the WR were still 2:02:57, I'd agree with you; but Kipchoge and Bekele are not that much more than a minute and a half away from the 2-hour barrier. Kipchoge ran 1:01:06+1:00:33, and Bekele ran...

    D'OH!!! I forgot about that one. Michael Johnson was my prime candidate for sub-1:40. He should have tried the 800 a few times on his way to retirement.
