KIPKETER + El GUERROUJ + BEKELE = ELDRICK ???


A place for the discussion of all things not closely related to the sport and its competitive side. (as always, locked for the duration of major international championship)

1000M WR + 1500M WR + 10000M WR...

Lost me there for a minute... thought you were trying to make those guys fit into an Eldrick somehow... biggest difference between them is that three of them don:t smoke (as far as I know).

Reading back through this opener, I am actually lost. Is WHO the next Eric Heiden? Eldrick? Who has 1k, 1,5k and 10k WRs? You have this on a current event, so it can:t be speed skating.

i think he means chad

http://olyparks.com/UOO/SpeedSkating_results.asp

however, chad isn't currently the 1k wr holder ( i don't believe he's ever held it ) & the 5k wr he set recently was beaten within days by a dutchman

i also have some bad news for his 10k - he took 2s of another dutchman's wr ( 12'57 to 12'55 ) & that dutchman set his at low altitude this year whilst chad's one was at ~ 4300 ft of altitude - i had a go with jrm's calculator on it ( just a rough esimate ) & i make it that the dutchman couda/shouda/wouda gone 12'50 if he'd skated it at the same altitude as chad - 5s faster than chad actually skated it

as things stand, chad is only ahead of all of his rivals in the 1.5k & behind the dutch in 5 & 10k
