No one on the planet has run a faster mile than that since...
Over 9 years...
Only 7 men have run faster in history all before more advanced drug testing
After crunching the numbers I've come up with the following.
Hicham El Guerrouj (massive doper) 99% chance
Noah Ngyeny (resigned as Kenyan Athletes representative when the
doping scandal broke loose, user and pusher) 97%
Noureddine Morceli (total doper) 99% chance
Steve Cram (went from skinny to roided up doper by end of career)
60% chance, was too anti doping now.. suspicious.
Vuste Niyongabo (some dude from Burudni who had Kenyan coach,
doper chance 66.66%
Daniel Komen (nobody to 7:20 in a short span, raced a ton in a 18
month span, then was gone) 95% chance
SaÃ¯d Aouita (total doper, massive scandals and allegations
against him) 99.5% doper chance.
Then there is Alan Webb, stocky but was always that way, balding, but heck he was going bald at 18. Just a testosterone fueled bad *ss!
Doping chance 33.333%
A very good chance that Alan is the real clean WR holder in the mile.
