It should be noted, that Lindgren's first mark of that memorable indoor season was at a meet in San Francisco. He ran 9:00.00. One month later, he ran 8:40.00.
My money is on Lukas.
This is not a hopeless dream, this young man just ran 4:03 for the mile indoors in his first indoor mile of the season and 8:43 for the two-mile in his first indoor two-mile of the season. And remember, the (Indoor) season just began. We aren't event o June or July...imagine sub-4:00 and sub 8:40 outdoors in the same season by the same guy.
"It is not the critic who counts, not the one who points out how the strong man stumbled or how the doer of deeds might have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred with sweat and ...dust and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, if he wins, knows the triumph of high achievement; and who, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt, 1910 speech "Man In The Arena"
