    Not so fast (pun!). I think we're looking at . . . sorry . . . scrubs for these relays, at least among the best teams capable of creditable times.

    Yeah, WB is 3:15.49 POL from Japan World Relays meet I believe.

    Sort of like how one defines a year when missing 3 drug tests

    With their best team I imagine the US could possibly go under 3:05

    that's pretty easily gamed! Now you can stage a decathlon (just making starting times up) where the second day starts at 11:00 on Sunday. You stage 3 events, wrap up Sunday at 18:00 or so. Then on Monday, after a nice night's sleep, rested both physically and mentally, you throw the jav at 09:00, run the 1500 at 10:30. Voila! Two consecutive 24-hour days.

    Nope, that's only the WL. The fastest time ever is 3:11.89 by Bahrain at last year's Asian Games.

    On this year's form (especially on the women's side), I doubt it. Had the event been contested over the last 20 years, though, I suspect the WR would be in that territory.

    Would that really increase the scores by a considerable amount, though?

    I think it would help 1500m times.

    I believe Curtis Beach did a 1500 on a third day in 3:58 (due to weather).
