880 WR Terre Haute, IN
Here is the link to our earlier showing of this race and an interview with Ryun about that race.
David Bailey's first sub 4 for an insider's view of this race
The ex-Oregon great hits the tape in 3:55.4 to tie his PR set last year. Duggan improves his junior college record by three seconds, finishing in 3:56.1. Dave Bailey sets a Canadian record of 3:59.1 but is barely noticed because the fourth place finisher is 18 year old Tim Danielson from the San Diego suburb of Chula Vista who becomes the second high school runner to break four minutes with a 3:59.4 clocking.
|Happier days, Jim Ryun, Tim Danielson, Marty Liquori, Alan Webb|
at the time the only high school sub four minute milers.
|Tim Danielson's life has certainly taken a turn for the worse with his spending the|
next fifty years to life in the California Correctional System for the murder of his ex-wife.
Ron Larrieu, making a rare mile appearance, is fifth in 4:03.6, a PR, making this the 15th consecutive year he has improved in at least one event. Rick Reilly's sixth place 4:04.7 moves him to number five on the high school list. Except for Grelle, every runner establishes a personal best.
