Very good dukehjsteve and happy birthday to the only American to win the Olympic 10,000 gold medal, Billy Mills. If you are old enough to remember the 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games, then you probably remember where you were when you heard that Mills had won the 10,000. There were no heats in the Tokyo Olympic 10,000 and the 5,000 was reached in 14:04.6. The second 5,000 was covered in 14:19.8 and Billy Mills ran the last 400 in 59.8.
If you saw it on television, you probably remember Dick Bank's "Look At Mills!!" Some of you (like Walt Murphy) saw the race in person. I envy you.
