Subject: RE: 16 year old Debbie Heald takes down the Russians, sets AR in 1972

Actually, her 4:38.5 was a WORLD record at the time. There was another thread on this amazing performance a few months ago.
The CA state meet made me think of what Heald and Lindgren were able to do. Imagine a 16 year old today taking down a world record holder and an Olympic champ in the same race.
