Tying in with Paske's article, it's interesting to look at the number of top performers by decade.

1960s - 14
1970s - 26
1980s - 15
1990s - 11
2000s - 33

Note: There's not a single performance from 1990-1994 on the list - and only one from 1989 (#98). That's a 6 year stretch with only 1 time in the top-100.

Also, keep in mind that there are still 2 more track seasons left in the 2000s.

Here's another way of making the same point ... and showing that the quality runs deep into the lists:

Below are the marks for the 50th-fastest time in Minnesota for each year since 1981, according to Miles & Miles.

1981 4:30.54* 9:53.24*
1982 4:28.94* 9:46.24*
1983 4:30.24* 9:52.94*
1984 4:28.94* 9:53.34*
1985 4:29.74* 9:52.14*
1986 4:33.24* 9:57.64*
1987 4:32.84* 10:00.84*
1988 4:32.44* 9:56.61
1989 4:32.71 9:56.56
1990 4:33.33 9:59.53 *
1991 4:33.95 10:00.80
1992 4:34.12 10:04.94*
1993 4:32.97 10:00.06

1997 4:32.50 9:57.71
1998 4:30.61 9:53.89
1999 4:30.60 9:56.31

Thanks, Tim.

Glad to see a notch on a tree from back in the day. I agree that more "Miles" and miles were responsible for better performances. The summers, for me, were miles in the bank before school. Have switched back to swimming miles to extend my athletics into(gulp)my forties.
