"...in Berne, Switzerland. He ran precise 60-minute laps, reaching the
1,200-meter mark in three minutes. He closed with a 59-second lap to clock
3:59.31, nearly duplicating Bannister’s time."====================While less than half the altitude of Salt
Lake, I have to wonder what his time might have been if he'd been on a
track at a lower altitude than Berne, at about 1780 ft.?
I fondly remember following Henry Marsh's career. Excited about his Utah
ties. So disappointed when his best chance at Olympic glory was lost in the
boycott of the Moscow games. Great career and a class athlete. Thanks for the
Sigh. 4:05 here. Henry: what a great guy and competitor!
