Londra 1960 - 2 miles track
In spectacle the 1960 AAA 2 mile duel between Stan Vickers (16) and Ken Matthews (32) stands comparison with any of the great races in the history of the championships. Scrupulously fair, yet at the fastest paceever seen in Britain, the two kept within a yard or so of each other, Matthews leading until the bell, when Vickers powered past to cut 9 sec from George Larner's 56-year-old record, (13:02.4), and Matthews, 13:09.6, also inside the old figures.
