    Area Record

    1:44.3

    SNELL Peter

    NZL

    Christchurch


    3 FEB 1962 ...Found this looking at Paris Diamond League results. Posting on current events board where it belongs. Too bad Snell is not active today, then he could be a G.O.A.T. Christchurch may have been a grass track.

        Who is out there in the Oceana area that could be a threat to beat a 1:44.3 ?

        John Walker perhaps had it in him, but that's been a long time ago.

          Jeff Riseley got close last year, running 1.44.6 in Rieti. He's been selected in the Aussie team for London in both the 800 and 1500 but may just run the latter.

            This year, I believe Riseley is more likely to run just the former.
