Sorry - I was a bit too fast with that post - apparently the converted times work out to 8:00, just outside the record. Still, some solid runs!

What makes the current record so impressive was the Scheibler did it on a 200m track and it was a solo job from start to finish.(1996 CIAU Championships) If i remember correctly, he lapped second place and won by at least 20 seconds.

@oiram Logic says he never lapped second place if he was any less than 32 seconds faster than second place, unless they both had a twenty second two hundred meter, for the last lap of Schiebler and the second last lap of said second place. On that note i call shenanigans.

Definitely no lapping as Rob Tyndall of Western was 2nd to Schiebler at the 1996 CIAU Champs held in Windsor running 8:19.68.

@djermyn Schiebler's 7:59 is only the CIS meet record, though. Williams went 7:54 at OUA's in 1979, which I think is still the fastest ever in-season time for a CIS athlete.

@JungleJack 1979!? Was he barefoot and running in some kind of crude, animal-hide garment? Was the track made of tree bark lashed together with the dried gut of a thousand Sabre-toothed Tigers? Was this timed using the pulse rate of a ground squirrel? Was he competing for Unibrow University (the Fighting Neanderthals-- not to be, but still quite often, confused with Notre Dame University)? This is an old record.

This pretty sums it up - mastodons were used by all to get to the event, the track was in the shade of the retreating ice-sheets. I recall watching a high school kid, Ian Clark, chasing Williams around and around that day - perhaps I have mixed-up memories? Clark ran 8:06 if I have the day right (on that crazy-loud board track somewhere down in the CNE grounds-area).

Young minds were certainly blown when we saw that result-- 3 weeks later, when it came out on a stone tablet, delivered on a cart using the first wheels ever devised.

[quote=oldster] Was this timed using the pulse rate of a ground squirrel?[/quote] @oldster I have heard this method of timing is not reliable unless you have a close relationship with the squirrel. They tend to get skittish around strangers.
