RE: LYDIARD OR DANIELS?
To say that Daniels had something to do with Ryun in 1968 is a joke. Daniels was involved with the '68 distance runners because of his "altitude" knowledge...which in those days was hardly anything. He had a degree, a lab, and his Olympic Modern Pen. experience which he used to get involved with the USOC's "altitude experiments" in '68. I am sure Timmons would appreciate knowing that Daniels was getting credit for Jim's training leading up to the Mexico Games. Daniels was a pain in the ass in those days always trying to be your "best friend" if you were one of the better runners. Back to the original question...Lydiard without a doubt. Compare the records...and espceially compare their records in the key races. Lydiard was a genius at getting athletes ready for "peak" events such as the Olympics.
