High-profile contests between Britons William Cummings and Walter George brought much publicity to the sport, as did Georges races against the American Lon Myers, the mile run was also one of the foremost events at the amateur AAA Championships.
The categories remained distinct but the rise in amateurism and decline of the professional sector saw the division become irrelevant in the 20th century. The mile run continued to be a distance in spite of the metrication of track and field.
It was the metres — sometimes referred to as the metric mile — which was featured on the Olympic athletics programme, the International Amateur Athletics Federation formed in and ratified the first officially recognised world record in the mile the following year. The fact that the run was the only imperial distance to retain its official world record status after reflects its continued popularity in the international era.

However, the clock and bell towers were switched at Arkansas, the northern taller tower is the bell tower, and the southern shorter tower is the clock tower. One legend for the switch is that the taller tower was put to the north as a reminder of the Union victory during the Civil War.

InJoseph William Foster at the age of 14 started work in his bedroom above his fathers shop in Bolton, England. After his ideas progressed, he founded his business J. Foster inlater he joined with his sons and changed the name to J. Foster opened a factory called Olympic Works, and gradually became famous among athletes for his running pumps.

They were made famous by m Olympic champion Harold Abrahams in the Summer Olympics held in Paris, the name is Afrikaans for the grey rhebok, a type of African antelope.
Inat the Chicago International Sneaker Trade show an American businessman, Paul Fireman, Fireman was working for an outdoor sporting goods store and negotiated a deal to license and distribute the Reebok brand in the United States.

It is the shortest common middle-distance running event, the metres is run over two laps of the track and has been an Olympic event since the first games in During indoor track season the event is run on a metre track.
The event was derived from the measurement of a half a mile. Imperial racing distances were common in the United States, american high schools were the last to convert to metric distances infollowing the NCAAs conversion in Countries associated to the English system converted to metric distances after the Commonwealth Games, m is 4.
The event combines aerobic endurance with anaerobic conditioning and sprint speed, both the aerobic and anaerobic systems are being taxed to a high extent, thus the metre athlete is required to combine training between both systems. If they are so inclined, m runners are encouraged to run the metres while m runners are encouraged to run the metres. The m event is known for its tactical racing techniques. Because the m event is the shortest event that has all the runners converge on lane one and it is commonly believed that getting the first or second position early in the race is advantageous as these positions are not usually caught up in the pack.
Olympic champions Dave Wottle, Yuriy Borzakovskiy and others have defied that logic by running a more evenly paced race, lagging behind the pack and kicking past the slowing early leaders. Often the winner of m races at high levels are not determined by the strongest runner and this can lead to the most exciting aspect of the m which is its high probability of an upset. Two common tactics for the meters are running a split or a positive split between laps. The positive split is widely considered to be the more effective strategy, a positive split is achieved by running the first lap faster than the second lap, and a negative split is achieved by the opposite, running the second lap faster than the first.
The current world record holder, David Rudisha, runs using a positive split strategy, in his Olympic race, he ran his first lap in Theoretically, a split is the most effective strategy. It is debated whether the m should be classified as a distance or long distance event. In elite level competition, m pace is more comparable to the found in the longer metres event.
