    If Santee-- and I don't know -- I would guess 1955 bc of his 'Ryun-parallel' medal at Pan-Am games that year. At least I think he did that, now that this thread has prompted the memory.

    I also like what he said about why he is running the 1500: "I love track." :)

    edit: Even though he ended up DNS for the 1500 -- not a surprise -- I still like what he said. ;)

    None of these tennis matches is too long, imo. On the other hand, imo, every basketball game ever played is far far too long for me. That's being a fan of some things and not others. :)
