Dammit, isn't the 800m TOPS??? :)
Persoanally, I think MJ 19.32 is the toughest record in running, followed by Kipketer's 1:41.11, followed by Komen's 7:20.
Coe was special, and it took a very special guy 16 years later to finally nail that record. Now we are 8 years later still....
That MJ run was Beamonesque. I might never live to see it broken.
7:20 has been attacked by the greats, and still it stands proudly head and shoulders above the rest of the 3000m times. 9 years now?
Id agree that 19.32 seems alomost impossible.
and , that 1:41.11, and 7:20 are close(not sure really on the order).
But i have a feeling that once Bekele gets done with the 10k, it will be pretty mind blowing as well.
also i would REALLy like to see EL G, and Bekele go at it over 3000m, and the 5000m
