RE: Emiel Putteman and Dave Bedford Could Have Broken World 10,000m Record in 1972 Olympic Heats?
Good call. Ovett could have stepped up in the early 1980's and gave the 5000 WR a scare.

Just watched that 72 10,000. Still has to be the most compelling 27 plus minutes of distance racing to this day. I watched Geb vs. Tergat in 96 but that was really only 6 minutes of excitement.
