I'm not trying to talk trash, but how could you not know this stuff? Might want to ease back on the poker and read up a bit more on the history of the sport if you want to claim to be a track and field journalist.
Agreed. I'd say that even a casual fan would know the basic history of this race. For what it's worth, I was sitting in the home stretch that day and don't remember it being super-windy during that race. Although, in real terms, 'windy' conditions aren't that windy at all. Also, why would an old-timer be better suited to explain this record being on the books? Would you need to be a baseball fan in 1961 to 'explain' Roger Maris's asterisk? Track and Field journalist? That's a fraudulent claim.
