    However, there has been an American who won the NAIA 6 mile the same year he won the 6 mile at the U.S. track and field championship meet.
    Van Nelson in 1967?
    Yes indeed.

    I had to look. Verified with results at gbrathletics.com. Never happened before this year.

    On the women's side, it's only happened once: Kim Schnurpfeil (Stanford), 1982.

    I'm beginning to suspect that's the answer.

    Without looking anything up and just off the top of my head leading candidates would be (the fact you mention 6M makes me think I should be looking farther back than I am):

    Salazar
    Virgin
    Mills
    Shannon Butler
    Todd Williams

    After that, I got nuthin'.

    Gotta be Shorter, Butler or Bjorklund, all of whom won both I'm pretty sure (but in the same year?)

    Yeah, I knew he was something of a late bloomer, but didn't realize how far off I was until I looked it up.

    Lindgren was my guess, but he never finished any better than his 2nd in WR time from '65. He preferred the 5000 at USATF. He only ran the 10 two other times, finishing 4th and 5th. Didn't run it in any of this three NCAA title years.
