I can't believe this conversion crap!
I can't believe people on here question conversions. Couldn't be a more hilarious stereotypical letsrun thread. As if people much smarter, and much more experienced than all of you didn't come up with them. Idiots. Whether you like it or "accept it" or not, 3:56 is what is on the NCAA list so thats what he ran.
Whether you like it or not, his season best marks are as follows:
So, he is not a sub 4 miler, sub 150 800 runner or sub 8min 3k runner.
There is a reason iaaf, and usatf do not accept 'converted marks'.
Are those inpressive marks for beign run at slight altitude? Yes. Do they gaurentee the conversions he recieves ? No.
I don't understand why the NCAA is the only governing body that accepts these marks.
