    <<
    When did this French and Spanish miling renaissance start. These guys are smoking. No Paulie it is not drugs!>>

    Their times are faster. That is a fact.

      Sorry, I wasn't specific enough.

        I was just poking fun at poster paulie's obsession with drug use in athletics. Every
        thread he posts is about drugs. We can be
        talking about Webb or Geb and Paulie comes
        into the thread talking about illegal drug
        use in track and field. I thinks it is rather amusing if not a little paranoid.

          Hey, I'll back you up on this one. It's not merely a "little" annoying, and it's more than a "little" paranoid.

            1992. Why?

              <Except that the 3:38.49 is what the Spaniard ran in the final. His seasonal best was 3:31.81 against Lunn's 3:36.99. In head-to-head races, if you want to bet on Lunn I'm eager to grab some of your coin. That's a 5.38-second differential man!>

              On a good day Lunn could beat him. Didn't someone on this forum say maybe a 3:35 guy can sometimes beat a 3:30 guy. Actually, this is the reverse agrument that Holman made.

                It also a fact the
                >Krummenacker is the fastest US 800 and 1500 meter
                >runner. However, Lunn was the highest ranked

                >believe he was ranked 31st in the world this
                >year.>

                Yet, based on this fact, you've formed the opinion that Lunn should have made the final.

                  And every thread you are on constantly harps on the fact that American milers arent' that good.

                    Yeah but why 'should' he have?

                      What if the Spaniard were bitten by a rare exotic bug before the race that made him to feel ill. There are many variables that can effect the outcome of a race.

                        Then it would move Lunn into a could have instead of a should have.

                          Lunn had a very good indoor season. Did you know he ran the world's second fastest indoor mile last winter in the Tyson Indoor Classic. In that race he finished second to Kenya's Ladan Rotich in 3:55.59. That is probably equivalent to a 3:52 mile out doors. Remember running the boards indoors bleeds off a lot of energy.

                          Both Krummenacker and Lunn obviously have better luck indoors.

                          Lunn started off his 2003 well and finished the season with a sub 4-minute mile.

                          In the UK Lunn's British equivalent Michael East won the North Mile on the River Tyne in 4:02. I say equivalent because both milers have virtually identical world rankings and PR's.

                            Why do you praise and pan Lunn at the same time. You are speaking out of both sides of your mouth. First you condemn him for not competing with the world's best and then you praise his indoor performances.

                            I think you are struggling to put Lunn and US miling into a positive light.

                              Actually he's struggling to come up with some basis for his opinions other than "Americans suck at miling."

                                I am not quite sure about that.
                                He never said US milers stink.
