I agree with the fans. I remember the indoor meet mentioned above. 3 events. There was an indoor second place to Lagat, I think. Everyone remembers the XC races the most, but those were against a shallower pool of competition than the occasional pro race. Here's what today's youth may not realize:
Never joined his HS track team.
Never ran in a State-sanctioned HS meet.
Never ran a 1600 or 3200 that I'm aware of. (I followed him at the time and never heard about one, feel free to correct if you know of any.)
2. not true
3. the 2 mile is the 3200 and he ran the fastest time in high school history, not to mention he ran the 1600 and 3200 at the same meet you mention above
