    That milesplit calculator is exactly what has been generally accepted for at least 50 years.

    Babcock 4:33.82 = 4:35.41'
    Hasay 4:14.50 = 4:34.86'
    Nice, putting Hasay at the top of the all-time combined list, ahead of the 4:35.24 mile by Polly Plumer in 1982.

The online converter I've been using ( http://www.milesplit.us/calc ) agrees with the Babcock conversion, but has Hasay's 1500 converting to a 4:34.78, good for the best all-time for the combined 15/16/mile. Is the online calc that far off, or was there an error down in Mountain View??

    The T&FN conv is off by their standards. The on-line calc is in the ballpark.
