RE: drug tests -- and drug headlines -- are false <-->
where the heck does this 32 times 1500 pace come from? it clearly doesn't work.
yes, in twenty years, the 100m record set by calvin smith in '83 as compared to the 10K record fell only 15 seconds (.15s drop multiplied by 100); the 10K record (set in '84 by fernando mamede) has fallen in about the same period 49 seconds. however, this can be largely attributed to the fact that sprinter training matured much faster than distance training; its basically the law of diminishing returns in sprinting, esp the 100m. most of the change in time can be attributed to better equipment.
in distance races, especially over 5K, altitute training has become prevalent but also drugs such as epo have become prevalent. it can never be proven now that any of those runners were on an illegal drug but the belief from many remains.
