    And how will the announcer call the race when he's leading Mister Andrews?

      By standard 1.08 conversion = 8:52.1

      On world level, from same era as Hulst, Hansjorg Kunze ran 7:56.4 (8:34.5) at age 16y 6mo in June 1976.

      In looking up Kunze, came across a tidbit of which I was previously unaware and will share.

      At age 21, at Rieti '81, Kunze ran 13:10.4 to defeat Henry Rono, the reigning 5000m WRH; the winning time was only two seconds off the WR Rono had set in 1978.

      Four days later, no doubt annoyed at the loss, Rono lowered his WR to 13:06 at a meet in Norway.

      Kunze was no flash: went on to medal at Worlds in '83 and '87 and at Seoul in '88.

      And, speaking of Drew Hunter, I am impatiently waiting for him to get on with being a 5000m runner, and stop playing around with the 1500m/mile.

                Right now Colorado has four of the 13 fastest 1600 runners in the country. It would be five if Michael Mooney would jump into a good race.

                  Sprout soloed a 9:01.53 for 3200 at his league meet at altitude in Denver this weekend. That breaks the Colorado all-classification state record of 9:04 last year by Tanner Norman. Not sure how it compares to his 8:13 3000 at sea level in Eugene. Also won in 1:56.61 and 4:17.31. I'm guessing these were on three separate days as the meet ran May 2- May 5 per Milesplit and I can't tell which events were on which days.
