Yeah there were definately a greater number in the 80's but this doesn't account for the drop off in quality at the top end of British 800m running. Worldwide the quality just isn't there anymore and there must be a reason....
Yes, there is a reason why only three runners have run 1.41
They were three of the best 800m runners of all time.
I think Peter Snell was just as good as Coe, Cruz and Kipketer. I would put all my money on Snell being Steroid free.
Why are there no 800/1500 runners today as good as Snell was in 1960-64?
