Kenyan Keino is the King of the 1500m 2:07

Kipchoge Keino of Kenya runs to an Olympic record of 3:34.91s in the rarefied Mexico City air. The favourite coming into the race is Jim Ryun, but the thin air and strong pace set by Keino's fellow Kenyan Ben Jipcho puts Keino into a formidable lead. Ryun takes the silver in 3:37.89, 25 metres back. Athletics 1500m Men Final - Olympic Record (3:34.91) - Mexico 1968 - Kipchoge Keino (KEN), Jim Ryun (USA), Bodo Tummler (FRG)
