What acceleration he had; a thing of beauty to see him in the early part of the homestretch, easily pulling away from a champ of Cram's calibre. (Cram really hit his peak form the next year.) Probably only Snell can claim to have been so strong as Coe at both 800m and 1500m.

Has any other country ever produced three 1500m runners of such tremendous calibre in such a short time? I doubt it. (Ovett born '55, Coe '56, Cram '60)
