Re: English Football 2015-16

Some sources suggest Pato might head to the EPL in January, was shocked to see he is only 26! Seems to me that he's been around since the beginning of time.

Arsenal team news: Kos might be back- I doubt we'll risk him vs Watford. Flam-Arteta back in full training. Nobody got injured in the international break (!!!)

Re: English Football 2015-16

Pato being 26 isn't a shock to me tbh, still trying to get my head around how Mido is 32 though.

It's a core academic text for sport psychology, so I'm inclined to think their claim had some merit, but it obviously by no means proof.
I really find that hard to believe - where on earth were all of these meetings being held?

Does your source have a reference to a list (or partial list) of those 37? Preferably from some sort of running/athletics records book/site.

I take the point that the sub4mile may have been a psychological barrier - and also that the record was relatively soft. But without further evidence I think I prefer my list as linked before. (And this seems to have about 16 or so people making the cutoff by the end of 1957 as per the newspaper article.) I'm somewhat inclined to believe that this (30? 37? people breaking the barrier within one year of Bannister) is a folk-myth in psychology circles.

All fair points, however you asked me for a reference and I gave you one.

If you want to dispute it, you have both authors names and the publishers. I suggest you start there.

yeah - until proved otherwise I'm just assuming that psychology degrees are worthless and the whole field is just bollocks & the people working in it are frauds.

I took 60 seconds to search online for "list of sub 4 minute mile" and turned up various pages which all pretty much agree with one another. This seems the clearest giving a complete picture: http://www.nuts.org.uk/sub-4/

clicking through to the datewise list of sub4 miles up to 2002 ( http://www.nuts.org.uk/sub-4/sub4-dat.htm ) you get:

Set mine to 50 when that was the max option - not aware of any empirical studies that support changing it.

Youtube videos usually come with a description. It is used to describe the contents of the video.
