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.
Yah, it's not like she is the most accomplished high school track athlete of all time or anything....
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.
