Daniel Komen went through his first 1600m in 3:54-55 and still finished his last 800 meters under 2:00. Just goes to show how talented Komen was. The best 3/5k runner of all time.
In Komens world record 2 mile he went through the mile in 359.4 but ran a 58.5 6th lap which hurt him for the last two laps he ran in 60.8 and 61.1. A second slower that 6th lap and he could have run 1 second faster each of the last two laps. Not a big difference, but still one second. Again just my opinion.
