    Perhaps the greatest NCAA coach of all time

    Legendary University of Arkansas men’s track and field coach John McDonnell passed away on Monday evening in Fayetteville, Arkansas at the age of 82.

      Ethiopian Olympic trials have been live streamed for the last 3 hours on You Tube. Final event is w10000m...there is a live blog also and some are speculating that the lights may or may not be set on WR pace. At any rate, the runner was ahead of the lights a minute ago

              The 5k record is looking even softer now. It should definitely be sub-14 by now.

                In 1965, Ron Clarke set an unratified WR of 28:14.0, then a few days or short weeks later, he broke that with 27:39.4.
                That was by the same athlete.
                This was by two different athletes.
                Both sets of WR's were/are impressive!!

                  But if we're talking 10k only (for either sex), I believe it is a record.

                      It's only a matter of time...so to speak!
                      LOL
                      But either woman can go sub-14:00 now--this summer!
                      Hassan has better speed over 1500 & the Mile, but it would be close!!

                        It was 28 days and the first of these records was never ratified. A better example of a short-lived 10k WR would be Yobes Ondieki breaking Richard Chelimo's 5-day old record in 1993.

                            from press release (BF mine)

                            Letesenbet Gidey strikes again with a beautiful performance. After breaking the 5000m world record in Valencia in October, she broke another world record in Hengelo today. During the Ethiopian Trials she took the two days old world record by more than 5 seconds.
                            Aided by pacemaker Jackline Rotich, Letesenbet produced a fantastic race by completing the 25-lap distance in a time of 29:01,03.
                            Running under the perfect circumstances inside the FBK Games stadium and aided by Wavelight Technology in the second half of the race, she now holds the world records on both the 5000m and the 10,000m.
                            “What a special night, I am so proud that after the 5000m world record I am now the 10,000m world recordholder as well. In this Olympic year it is the perfect preparation.

                              Somewhat off topic but I thought the shortest world records were in some pentathlon (1980?) where several women broke the world record after finishing the 800 seconds after each other.
