Pat Butcher Opines on Arne Andersson, by Larry Eder


Pat Butcher, our friend from across the pond, wrote a superb piece on meeting Arne Andersson and Gunder Hagg six years ago. A touching, thoughtful piece on two men, who competed against each other all out, changed our thoughts on the mile and kept the sport alive during the dark days of the Second World War, neutral Sweden. (If anyone has found video of their races, would love to pass that on to our readers! )
