    Re: Aussie triv.

    I'd have to guess de Castella or Moneghetti.

      Steve Moneghetti was 4th in 1989, which is the best by an Aussie, male or female, in the long race. Benita Johnson was 4th in the short race in 2002.

        ...that was, of course, before she won it a couple weeks ago in the 2004 edition!

          Benita is Australia's best hope , of either gender, for an OG gold. She is totally focused on 10K. What are her chances?

            Yes, I agree, but this is the HISTORICAL thread

              Question 2: NCAA men's marathon record holder's name, time, and college. No peeking until those get in an answer from their cranium.

                The 2004 edition is history by now (recent history, that is :-P)

                  Gary Henry, somewhere around 1979 or 1980, 2:10. He was at a small college that I can't place.

                      Garry, Leave it to you to throw it back into my lap. I am not sure, without looking it up myself, whether it was loop or p-t-p. From memory, I believe it was Fukuoka. I am avoiding going further since I am also not sure which classification it is. Henry is the answer I was looking for. I was trying to see how many could name the university without looking it up. School me on each course and add Henry's school, but no looking it up yet. By the way, can you believe the dastardly way PB spelled Henry's first name?

                        actually, you misunderstood my question: I was asking whether Henry held the loop or p-t-p record. That's my way of saying there's a faster collegian than him on a p-t-p course. He has the loop best, but isn't the fastest of all.

                        ps--I'm shocked that Satch would pose an Aussie trivia question (one from which we've strayed faaaar) and the answer not be Batman!

                          Garry, I understood, but don't know the answer. I believe Henry ran his time at Fukuoka, but don't know the course layout. PB, sub 2:11 (2:10+) is the correct time as well. Still looking for the school.

                            Yes, Henry ran at Fukuoka, which is classified as a loop. So now people need to find a collegian who ran faster on a p-t-p.

                            As for Henry's school, it how has a (slightly) different name than it did when he ran for them. Hint: it used to be X State, now it's U of X [State]

                              Salazar ran 2:09 while still in college back in 1980.
