RE: LYDIARD OR DANIELS?
Jack Daniels is the reason Jim Ryun won the silver medal.
You can ask the Jim Ryun family who gets the credit. Jim and Jack are still great friends today and participate in their high school cross country camp.
Jack took Jim to his altitude in Alamosa and had Ryun run as "easy mile" in 4:15-4:20. He had just set the world record in 3:51. Jim stopped 600m into the time trial and said lets try again in 10 minutes. He could only muster 4:32! A year later the benefits of Daniels paid off with the silver medalist. Jack was trying to get into the running business at that point to help our runners and Ryun was the reason. We all have benefited!
