Your Track Vault Pick of the Week

Fifty years ago today, Herb Elliott and Dyrol Burleson were on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
Now a new and different Elliott is on tour, a brief trip this time, to California, where he has a schedule of three races at 1,500 meters and a mile. Only one of these is very important: the mile he will run this week at the Modesto Relays against a field that includes Dyrol Burleson (see cover), the youngster from the University of Oregon who is the best miler America has ever produced.
