Subject: RE: Paula Radcliffe should give Wang Junxia the benefit of the doubt
Simple comparison of Tirunesh Dibaba and Meseret Defar's 5000m times to Wang's 3k time on Jack Daniels VDOT tables indicate that both Dibaba and Defar ran 5k times equivalent to about an 8:08 or 8:09 3k, so Wang's 8:06 is not an impossibility
Comparing Pamela Jelimo's 1:54 clocking also indicates that she ran a time equivalent to a 3:52-3:53 in the 1500 meter...
In conclusion, yes Wang was spectacular in 1993 but then again meteoric rises of equivalent performance are not unheard of (for instance Jelimo , Dibaba, Daniel Komen, and Noah Ngeny only have had 1-2 spectacular seasons at young age and then dropped from the WR ability)
