    Reading front page post about Cory McGee, was surprised to learn that 1500 meters is "slightly more than a mile."

    Ooops!

    That's a little like a US paper being confused by a Sheffield newspaper having a full-time reporter who only covers Wednesdays.

    Very weird...I've read the FT for decades in the U.S....it's widely available here...so I was surprised they made an error like that...OTOH they don't have a sport section...

    I'm not sure whether this is clueless writing or clueless commentary by a great athlete. It's from a story about Eliud Kipchoge's saying that others will break 2 hours in the marathon.

    ". . . It possible to have good pacesetters in a normal marathon,” said Kipchoge, noting that legendary Briton athlete Roger Bannister ran the first sub four-minute mile 65 years ago when everyone thought it was impossible.

    Kipchoge noted that after Bannister won the race at the Oxford AAA Team, Oxford, Britain in 3:59.40 on May 6, 1954, 14 athletes also ran under four minutes within two weeks.
    Well, Kipchoge may have said it, but it's utter nonsense. Nobody ran under four minutes within two weeks of Bannister's first sub-4 mile. And it was more than three years before 14 athletes would run sub-4. (And, course, Bannister's mile was not timed to 1/100th of a second.)

    "Muhammad beat fellow nominees Brigid Kosgei, who broke the women's marathon world record, and Sifan Hassan, who won world gold in the 5,000 and 10,000 meters."

    There must be some subtlety I missed. ManU tied Sheffield U today 3-3 in a great match. What did RG screw up?
