      She said her PR is 23 low, but 22.7 wind aided. She added her coach wants her to work on the 400 over the coming months. She doubted he'd change his mind despite this performance because he wants to work on her stamina. She has thought of herself as a better 200 runner up to this point.

        I enjoyed her immediate after race interview. She appears to be a very sensible and level headed young lady without any airs or ego tripping. The USA seems to have struck a deep vein of awesomely talented young ladies who look like they could ensure US dominance over the next few years.

          destroys the old record - and it is not even her best 100 of the month!

            Ryun ran 3:55.3 on June 7, 1965.

            Going into the day, the world all-time performance list was:

            3:54.03, Peter Snell 11/17/1964
            3:54.4, Snell 1/27/1962
            3:54.5, Herb Elliott /6/1958
            3:54.9, Snell 5/25/1963
            3:55.0, Snell 6/7/1963

            But it should be noted that Ryun's mark came on a synthetic track, and there was a good number of marks within 2-3 seconds of the 3:55.3 that were made on cinders, et al.

              Didn't Jazy have a 3:53 ?

                Jazy set a new world record of 3:53.6 two days later on 9 June 1965 - a depressing day in NZ and at my high school as our national hero lost his WR.

                  10.98 legal, as a thrower I think only Mike Carter is in the same league....

                    At the meet she said she was definitely skipping Eugene and going to the World Youth Trials again (she still has to go through the formality of actually making the team—this is the U.S. after all!)

                      This current sophomore class is simply amazing on the girls side.

                        I believe Ryun ran his AR on June 27th. In "The Jim Ryun Story" it's mentioned that Ryun was anxious about the AAU race against Snell because Jazy had recently lowered the record to 3:53.6 and Ryun's coach (Edmiston) had made remarks about going after the WR.

                          Just a thought: Was Margaret Bailes still in HS when she ran her wind-aided hand-timed 10.8 back in 1968?

                            ...And she retired right after Mexico City 1968! :-(
