Canadian Taylor Milne Sets 1,000m World Best
How fast could you run 1km? I mean it's only ONE kilometer. You marathoners do 42(.2) of them. So if you had to do one, as hard as you could, what do you think you could pull off? 4:00? 3:00?
Well 30 year old Taylor Milne (pictured right) ran 2:20.94 setting the bar absurdly high for his 2012 competitors! The 1k world record is 2:11.96!!! Can you imagine running 2:20 for one km and still losing by 9 seconds! He's looking like a strong candidate for the 1500m in London
Taylor has also broken the legendary 4 min mile mark and has the 2km record in a time of 5:01.57 (2:30.75/km)!
