Why does the current women record still stands when the chinese athlete involved took drugs? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.168.75.130 (talk) 09:12, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

She never got caught, that's the reason. 82.141.67.203 (talk) 17:09, 5 February 2013 (UTC)

Item for future reference[edit]

"One of the few American elite runners was Bay to Breakers rookie Scotty Bauhs, a Danville native who holds the world record for the youngest person ever to run a mile in less than four minutes and a 10,000-meter race in less than 28 minutes."[1] Location (talk) 20:55, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

10K[edit]

There reads: The 10,000 metres or 10K is a common long distance running event. As "10,000 metres" it is a track event, and appears in athletics events such as the Olympic Games and the World Championships in Athletics; as "10K" it is a roadrace or cross country running event.
So where is the additional info about the 10K? The best times and the world record progression, at least. There is some scores in the IAAF site. 82.141.67.203 (talk) 17:19, 5 February 2013 (UTC)
