Matt Scherer had good range from 100m to 800m but no 1500:
There was a guy named Cliff West, brother of Cornell West, who ran 3:44 for 1500, making the USA finals, and several years later ran 20.53 in the 200m, #14 in the world that year.
From 100m to 1500m Curtis Beach might win for range within a single day, Brandon Johnson for lifetime
There is also a woman who ran 10.94 and 4:12.................................
Oh, I forgot to say that no elite 800m runner can run a sub-12 100m.[/quote]
Steve Ovett ran 11.9 at the age of 15.
