Believe that's Ralph Boston commenting on Tim Vollmer / Silvester discus
Last lap 59.2 .. shade different than today's guys - no? If I recall - that was considered a pretty impressive finish.
At the 1966 Coliseum Relays, Jim Ryun and Jim Grelle both ran 8:25.2 for two miles. Ryun's mile splits were 4:15 and 4:10.......and his last lap was 56.4!! He had just turned 19!!
I was there!!
A great run. I wish I had been in Rieti to watch Komen's 3K WR. Probably my favorite piece on yt. Each lap under 60 sec., and certainly well below 8:00 for 2 miles, only 42 years after Bannister's 1954 historic run.
