    Two trainers: the head one at the finish line, one assistant at the start line.

      Ok, simple enough but that is pretty labor intensive. I guess it is fortunate we did not have to contend with 1500 split timing sixty years ago when we only had one coach and no trainers for a fifty man track team.

        Assuming you are talking about HS or College, I am pretty sure there were plenty of "student managers" around who would gather split information.

        This didn't have to be paid labor.

          You've officially mixed up distance runners with the actual topic of 1.500m runners. Last I recall watching, Tegenkamp and Solinsky were toughing it out near the front in big Euro meets the past couple of years (specifically at 3.000m).

            And they give the HS guys a hard time because they completely eliminate this problem by running the 1600 instead of the 1500. Tell me which group is 'smarter' in this regard?
