    First, the official AR is 3:29.30, not 3:27.40.
    I believe 3:29.30 is the generally accepted AR!
    The AR is 3:27.40.

      Isn't that the American Record according to USATF but not the rest of the world?

        There ARE different listings!
        FAST Annual 2021 lists 3:29.30, and doesn't even have the 3:27.40 with an asterisk!
        T&FN says it's the 3:27.40 in their list of AR's!

        I've mostly seen it as the 3:29.30.
        But I think we've had a thread about this before!

          Now in Tokyo it is 2:52 am and the temperature is 80F and the dew point is 73F. That is very warm and muggy. And that's at night. Racing conditions are going to be tough in the 1500 and up.

            So USATF did, or did not, ratify Lagat's record?

                  Huh? The ratified American Record is 3:27.40. How is that an odd position?

                    Wiki says USATF didn't ratify it, which is why I asked the previous question. Why doesn't FAST recognize it?

                          The USATF website says 3:27.40 is the American record (as gm linked as well)

                          https://www.usatf.org/special-pages/...erican-records

                          USATF rules also stated that an athlete needed to be an American citizen to set American records. Lagat was an American citizen since May 2004.

                            So may we assume that FAST, of which I am a charter member, does not agree?

                              To non Americans it is odd as he ran it just before winning an Olympic silver for his country of birth, Kenya.

                                That whole change of country was bogus, you can't win a medal under another country's flag and claim to be an American. Nope.
