I love getting links from folks of classic track races in past championship races. There are some out there that are pure gold. This is a good example. I never knew much about Dave Wottle growing up as being from the UK I was completely surrounded by the legends of Coe, Cram and Ovett et al.
I won't spoil the ending but check out how far back he is in the early going. What a great example of control and pacing, not to mention confidence. Enjoy!
