"One veteran observer of the sport turned to me after Kincaid’s 12:51 and said he was finding it hard to get excited about the parade of fast times.......That is not to say that all these records aren’t impressive – Fisher, Nuguse, Kincaid, Bosley, et al. are top athletes producing terrific performances. But the results of the past few years have shown that we need to recalibrate what is considered fast, especially in a setting like BU where everything (shoes, pacers, track) is optimized."
Just celebrate the performances man. Noone cares.
