Subject: RE: Is this the first time a Canadian distance record>U.S. distance record?
To answer the question, I can think of one other situation.
The indoor collegiate 1000m record was held by a Canadian for 20 years (1986 - 2006) with the "American" collegiate record being a tiny bit slower.
( ironicly, the guy who held the "American" collegiate 1000m record, Gwain Guy from rice, didn't make the US Olympic Team so he ran for Jamacia in the Olympics using a B standard and the fact that he had a parent from there,... Go figure, American collegiate record holder representing another country in the Okympics!)
Now that I think of it, in the early 80's. Canadian Greame Fell held the collegiate indoor record in the 3k, while Ron Becht held the indoor 2k, so Canadians held 1k, 2k and 3k. ( with 2k and 1k not run that often although the 1k was an NCAA championship event for a number of years)
