YouTube now has the video of the great 5000m race in full, with the original commentary. Not that the NZ commentator has anything to say, but Monner's "Lloydy! Lloydy!" in the background is a classic. At least three of the runners - Ngugi, Pat Carroll, and Andrew Lloyd himself, were Canberra based. Maybe Ondeiki was here at some stage too. I remember when I saw this race live I was cheering for Ngugi, that is, until the finish!
Vale Ian Mackenzie
ACT Cross Country Club runner Ian Mackenzie collapsed and died while on a run with the "Tuesday Group" yesterday morning. Ian was about 59 years old and has been part of the running scene, both track and distance running, for many many years.
