    very very tall - looks like lots more in the tank as well. Very (as an understatement) very impressive. Announcers - Oh no no no no no no no can't believe what I just saw."
    Much like Liquori's "ahhhh cannot be no-one can run that fast" .... incredulously

    Does anyone know how many runners were ahead of Jim Ryun--on the all time list--when he ran his 3:55.3 against Snell?

    She said her PR is 23 low, but 22.7 wind aided. She added her coach wants her to work on the 400 over the coming months. She doubted he'd change his mind despite this performance because he wants to work on her stamina. She has thought of herself as a better 200 runner up to this point.

    I enjoyed her immediate after race interview. She appears to be a very sensible and level headed young lady without any airs or ego tripping. The USA seems to have struck a deep vein of awesomely talented young ladies who look like they could ensure US dominance over the next few years.

    Ryun ran 3:55.3 on June 7, 1965.

    Going into the day, the world all-time performance list was:

    3:54.03, Peter Snell 11/17/1964
    3:54.4, Snell 1/27/1962
    3:54.5, Herb Elliott /6/1958
    3:54.9, Snell 5/25/1963
    3:55.0, Snell 6/7/1963

    But it should be noted that Ryun's mark came on a synthetic track, and there was a good number of marks within 2-3 seconds of the 3:55.3 that were made on cinders, et al.
