10,000 Metres
WR 29:31.78 Junxia Wang CHN Beijing, 08 09 1993

Of course, from the infamous '93 Bejing meet

Are we to believe that in a matter of 5 days, Wang CLEANLY and LEGITIMATELY ran 3:51, 8:06, 8:12, and 29:31?????

I would just like to re-emphasize her epic "feat" at this meet in '93.
September 8th: 29:31.78
September 11th: 3:51.9
September 12th: 8:12.2
September 13th: 8:06.1

So we have a huge WR In the 10k (and a 20+ second record in the 5k on the second half), then 3 days later betters the old WR in the 1500m. Then the next day, a 10+ second WR in the 3k, then the very next day, another 6 seconds off the one day old record. This is like a guy today running 12:55+12:15 10k splits for a time just over 25:00. Then three days later going about 3:20, the next day under 7:10, then 7:04 a day later. I ain't buying it. Incorrect starting lines, not enough laps (for the 10k), short track (for some reason this seems the most likely to me), or drugs. Sorry, but you don't run these monumental times and then not ever come within even 3-4% of a single one of those times ever again.
