    Not to mention his bronze medal from the Rome 1500 at 3.39.2 which I believe was a personal best.

      >By 1995, there were over 30 Irish 4 minute milers!

        I did say per head of the population! Kenya would need well over 100 four minute milers to match Ireland - which they probably have, as it happens!

          seeing as Kenyans don't run the mile very often(they are primarily 800, 1500, 3kSC 5k & 10k guys & tend to run those races or the intermediate distance of 3k for the longer guys), the actual no. of Kenyan current 4 min. milers will be small

          however 4 m mile is not quick for these guys & if you worked out what level of performance in their speciality distance these guys would have to run in order to be potential 4m milers (i.e. what 800m time an 800m specialist needs to be able to run in order to prove he has required speed/stamina for a 4min mile or what a 10k guy needs to run 10k in order to prove he has required stamina/speed for a 4 min mile, it wouldn't be very high.

          so if you added up all the potential 4 min milers amongst the massed ranks of Kenyan 800, 1500, 3kSC, 5k & 10K ( & not of course forgetting the road-runners/Marathoners !), i'm sure you will have well over a 100 guys
