    What do you mean "most of those 3:40 times". He has only run 3:40 just once, with the exception of a 3:58 indoor mile.

      That was written on June 26 by some doubter. Since then he has had 3 races: 3:36.64 PR, 3:38.71 (3 seconds under PR at start of year) and 3:35.75 PR. The way I see it now, the sad part is he's likely get an A qualifier and clearly be the best U.S. miler (excepting Krumm, of course) but not get to run in Paris because nobody else will get the A. Poop.

          He's another one of those Stanford losers who are being messed up by Vin L - thank goodness they fired him already.

            Too bad Krum's not interested in the 1500 at Paris -- he just ran a 3:35 in Stockholm a few minutes ago.

              Could you give more details on the race in Stockholm. How did Krummenacker place?

                  Where are all these Russian milers coming from.

                    What are you talking about. There's only one on that list, and that's Shabunin, who has been around a long time.

                      Re: 1500

                      Shabunin has been around for a while:

                      2000 - 3:50 mile
                      2001 - 3:49 mile
                      2002 - 3:32 1500

                      He has been on of the top guys in many big 1500/miles - never seems to win much but cranks the times. His winning "the big one" would be much less of a suprise than a Cacho-type upset.

                        I have seen quite a few Russian milers placing in big races.

                          According to Jalava's current lists, Shabunin is the only Russian in the top 80 in the world in the 1500 or the mile. There are a few Russians of lesser ability kicking around, but that's nothing new.

                            Are you talking about the women?
                            Or are you using 'Russian' as a generic term for someone coming from the former Soviet Union/anywhere in Eastern Europe/any country you can't locate on the map?
                            The only other decent male miler from Russia I can think of in the last decade is Andrey Zadorozhniy (a 3:36 runner at best).

                                Vyacheslav Shabunin is probably Russia's best. He ran 3:32.28 in 2000 and a 3:49.83 mile in 2001. So far this year he has run 3:34.71.
