I never said Ryan Hall's record was the best American performance ever.
I just said on conversion charts many people are saying it is on of the best ones ever and wanted to start the conversation.
I mainly was talking in a statistical sense, but I even said in my first post, Kennedy's 12:58 and other 5ks runs which rank slightly lower than Hall's run on charts, are superior.
And I never said anything about championship races. Of course you measure championship races, differently. Was Hall's run a better achievement than Meb's Olmpic silver? No way in hell. But I'm just trying to get where in terms of pure statistical performance people think this run ranks. It was a truly magical run.
