Lagat vs Coghlan vs O'Sullivan in the Wanamaker Mile
John Desmond writes a wonderful blog on Irish running called "Running in Cork, Ireland." County Cork has produced a number of tremendous Villanova runners such as Sonia O'Sullivan, Marcus O'Sullivan, John Hartnett, Donal Walsh, Ken Nason, John Hunter, and Aidan O'Regan. In a recent post he compared the Wanamaker Mile victories of the three most prodigious milers in recent Millrose Games history: Bernard Lagat, Eamonn Coghlan, and Marcus O'Sullivan, the latter two being icons in Villanova running history. Here is a nice comparison of their mile prowess at Millrose.
