  • Question about 2009

    How does 2009 stack up historically for the number of significant distance records set by Americans? I'm sure I'm missing some but by memory we have (on the men's side):

    - indoor WJR at the mile - Fernandez (also the AJR, obviously)

    - Two AJRs at 5,000 (Derrick and Fernandez)

    - Indoor 5,000 AR (Rupp)

    - Outdoor 5,000 AR (Ritz)

    I count at least six World, American, Junior or Open records, nearly all at 5,000.

    My question is, is this a record number of records?

    '74 in outdoor ARs has Steeple, 3000, 2M, 5K, 10K.

    outdoor CR in 10K as well, so that makes the year a tie without getting into Junior Records or anything indoors.

      Thanks, gh. I knew it had to be up there for the number of distance records re-written. An exceptional year by any measure.
