    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.

    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...
