    ... think he was a better 1500/miler than Jim Ryun?

    Kip has always been noted for his humility. If he thought so, I can't imagine he ever said to anyone.

      He did say after Jim beat him with a last 1320 in 2:47?," That Jim Ryun, he run too fast."

        Agreed. I have met him and he is indeed a remarkable man. However, I have to say that I was a bit surprised--on seeing these films recently--at his somewhat less than generous attitude toward Ryun after both the 1967 London race and the '68 MC race.
