    Re: 1500

    If Shabunin wins in Paris, it would be a MUCH bigger surprise than Cacho's victory in '92, IMHO.

    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.

    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).

    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.

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

    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.

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

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

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

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

    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.
