    ##2,6,9,10 in the event won 4x4 gold in 2:56.69, a time that has only been bettered (slightly) by one other nation.

    GB ran 2:56.60 at Atlanta '96 and 2:56.65 at WC following year.

    I am surprised w/r/t the 3kSt for this year. It seemed that the top times were not as fast as I would have expected, given the propensity to race fast this year. It appears that the difference between first and tenth was a lot closer than usual!

    Thanks for sharing this.
