        2 3:34.01 Graham Williamson Oslo, NOR 28 Jun 83

          Interesting list.
          When I think of small countries and 1500/mile, New Zealand (4.8 million) comes to mind.
          Both now have six sub-3:36, with the Kiwis having the edge head-to-head all-time, but the Scots ahead for this decade:

          http://www.anzrankings.org.nz/site/results_con

          3:29.66 Nick Willis
          3:32.4 John Walker
          3:33.89 Rod Dixon
          3:34.19 Zane Robertson
          3:34.9 Peter O'Donoghue
          3:35.90 Adrian Blincoe

          Also, you may want to note that Mt SAC Relays are in Torrance this year, not Azusa.

            SAC indeed in Torrance, but Kerr's mark was at the Clay Invitational, which was in Azusa

              Thank you. There is so much great early season track, I'm having trouble keeping up.

              My impression is that we are coming off one of the best indoor seasons ever, and are seeing some of the best early outdoor season marks ever. I wonder if these early marks are precursors of even greater performances at Nationals, Worlds, and Diamond League, or if the real stars of 2017 are building a base and are yet to emerge.

                Get him in a rabbited race later this summer and he should shatter the NCAA mark.

                  Though, in all fairness, Ches had already run a winning 5000 the day before along with the 1500 heat. And I appreciated Kerr mentioning that in his post race interview. I doubt if Ches will run the 1500 at NCAAs (and if he did it would probably be part of a triple), but I'd love to see those two go head to head somewhere like Monaco. Also, Kerr's time translates to a 3:52 mile, so I'd say both he and Ches are equals.

                    The translation is more like 3:35.5, not 3:52. Also, Tim Hacker had a European 3:35 in his extended season (senior year, probably, but not sure; his son is a red-shirt freshman at Wisconsin this year, having turned down an offer from Stanford).

                      Oh no Master. I must raise the flag of nationalism again.

                      Point 1. NZ is ahead at each ranking, that is, our first is faster than their first, as is our 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th.

                      Point 2. For this decade I think Willis is faster than anything the Scots have come up with.

                      Point 3. Kerr is a great talent and I would celebrate him taking Scotland ahead of Willis if it so comes to pass

                        Huh ?? You got me lost on the logic of this one

                          3:42.22 <=> 4:00.00; 3:35.99 is 6.23 sec below the equivalent, so take 1.08 times 6.23 and subtract it from 4:00, SO 6.73 seconds less than 4:00 is 3:53.27 is the equivalent of 3:35.99 (sorry that when I did the approximate calculation in my head I was off by a quarter second).

                            Sorry, but I am more confused than ever.

                            The difference between 3:35.5 and 3:52 is 16.5 seconds.
                            So how can a 3:52 be more like 3:35.5?

                              3:42.22 for 1500m is <=> 4:00.00 for a mile.

                              3:35.99 is 6.23 sec below 3:42.22 so 1.08 times 6.23 and subtract it from 4:00, So 6.73 seconds less than 4:00 is 3:53.27 is the equivalent of 3:35.99. Which part do you want another comment on to clear up uncertainty?
