Quote Of The Day
“We went through [1,200m] in 2:51 and it energised me. I thought: ‘wow, this is great, now it’s time to just do it.’ … I didn’t know what was going to happen when I made that move. I wasn’t afraid I would die; I knew I was dying. I just kept thinking: ‘get there, get there, go as hard as you can. Don’t let up.’ … I was pretty distressed. I remember throwing up on the side of the track. … It’s the race I’m most proud of. I didn’t win any Olympic medals, but I think I got as much out of myself as I could. To run under 3:50 in the mile is to be part of a really special club.”
– Former Irish Olympian and current sports agent Ray Flynn talking about when he set the still-standing Irish mile record with a 3:49.77 at the 1982 Bislett Games’ Dream Mile.
