  • Deepest 5K ever?

    Not sure if this belongs on "Current" or "Historical," since it's a little of both.

    I went to the Oslo GL meet this year and watched seven men break 13 in the 5K. Was this the deepest (most sub-13s) ever in one race? Blew my mind to watch it -- when I first started following track, the WR was Moorcroft's 13:00.41.

    See the best-ever-marks-for-places list at http://www.trackandfieldnews.com/archive/bemfp_m.html
    The most sub-13s in one race was actually 8 - that happened in Oslo in 2000. This year's race is also up there, with best ever for places 4-6

      Thanks. And wow -- on that same page, look at the Van Damme 10K from last year. Awesome.

        I had to laugh at the reference to Moorcroft's low 13. I still remember when Anufriev and then Zátopek broke 14 (around the same time Zátopek broke 29). It's been about 50 years. Getting old sucks, gentlemen.
