  • RIP: Arne Andersson (91)

    Gigantic legend during the war-years of 1940's has died at age 91 years.

    Epic battles with Gunder Hägg in 1944 when he beat Hägg in six of seven races. Set four world records in the 1.500m and mile.

    What are your best memories from the Andersson/Hägg era in the 1940's?

      Actually, I was in the 7th -9th grade and was fully aware of their epic quest to break four minutes. I am not sure how I followed this. I doubt that the weekly Hobart Democrat-Chief had a sports section (except local school stuff)
      Maybe LIFE magazine and the news reels, after the cartoon and the serial, at the Saturday "picture show"
