RE: Mahk V Centro- the mid distance rivalry athletics needs
Yeah but who won?

You can say that Ryun was the best in the world in 1966 and 1967 because he ran the best times by reasonable margins both years. 3:51. and 3:51.1.
He was also 21 years old in 1967.

However in 1968 Kip Keino won at altitude in Mexico City. It's unfortunate perhaps but you cannot take his gold medal away. Remember too that Keino had some adversity in his life as well. We cannot measure those things.
