1960_Olympian_Herb_Elliott_1.jpg
1960 Olympian Herb Elliot 1Herb Elliott AC MBE is Australia's greatest middle distance runner. In August 1958 he set the world record in the mile run, clocking 3:54.5, 2.7 seconds under the record held by Derek Ibbotson; later in the month he set the 1500 metres world record, running 3.36.0, 2.1 seconds under the record held by Stanislav. In the 1500 metres at the 1960 Rome Olympics, he won the gold medal and bettered his own world record with a time of 3:35.6.

Few people have ever exercised such absolute authority in any branch of sport as Elliott did in middle distance running from 1957 to 1961. During that span he never lost a 1500 metres or 1 mile race. During his career, he broke four minutes for the mile on 17 occasions. Elliot's nearest rival was fellow Australian Merv Lincoln.

2015_Coburg_24_Hour_-_Bernie_Goggin_and_Matt_Delaney_ponder_the_paperwork_while_Neville_calls_lap_numbers.JPG
2015 - Coburg 24 Hour Carnival: Bernie Goggin and Matt Delaney ponder the paperwork while Neville Wilson calls the lap numbers.Back in 2015, we had a semi manual recording system for the 6 Hour and 24 Hour Carnivals. An official with a mic called the race numbers and they were manually entered into a software program which then took over and kept count of how far everyone had gone. It was better than a fully manual system but still required a lot of officials and helpers.
