    It would have been a different race with Ryun in the race as I believe Liquori in the commentary aluded to...Keino going out earlier...would it have made much difference? Vaino was really on that day....

      I just found an AP cablephoto published in the New York Times. The race was clearly run counterclockwise, unless Jazy was running at least in lane three and leaning in the wrong direction.

        Keino went out with 850 to go as it was, about the same point as in Mexico, so I doubt Ryun's presence would have changed his tactics much.

          The photo on page 2 of this article suggests CCW:

            Thanks. My AP photo was in the NYT, to which I can refer but not legally transmit.

              That makes sense because every video I've seen of Jazy in France including the 2 mile has the race CCW....
