No it wouldn't. Mclaughlin has the top seven all-time prep times in the 400H. Ryun is only #2 in the mile. Not to mention all of the additional prep and world Jr records she possesses.

Correct. That would be Jim Ryun.[/quote][/quote]

In 1965, when Ryun was a high school senior as McLaughlin is now, he ranked #4 in the WORLD in his event and beat the reigning Olympic champion and world record holder. McLaughlin is a great high school athlete, but she is was not world ranked last year and won't be this year.
