From earlier Trackbot for Coe versus Ovett. Did they really only race each other 5 times on the track? 4 of them at the Olympics?
Is it only international level races that are in the database? Surely there most be a lot of domestic level races missing?
Exactly what I also posted, there was at least one XC race at jnr level (hs) that the two met, with Ovett coming 2nd and Coe 10th. I bet there was track meets where Ovett won or placed in the final and Coe failed to make the final.
