I'm surprised Clinger was able to take down an all American 1500 specialist.
I'm even more surprised Troutner was that close too. 4:01. Making progress after his mission. He's got a bright future.
Altitude adjustment for Provo is 4.9 seconds... those times are moving.
Does the altitude adjustment work both ways? Meaning, since the BYU guys are acclimated to Provo, should we expect they will run 4-5 seconds faster at sea level? I don't see their top 3 guys as 3:54-3:56. My gut says the benefit for them going down in elevation is less than the penalty for a sea level guy going up in elevation. Has this been addressed anywhere before?
Clinger just ran a 13:24 5K at sea level...
