It's not true. Rick Merk of Elder won the GCL in 4:33.0 in 1983 when Tom Thompson of Elder & Shane Meredith of St. X both were dq'ed for beating the crap out of each other the entire race. Also, Merk tied his teammate Doug Quatman to be the co-champion of the 3200m run in 9:58.6. Thompson never won a GCL title (unless he was on the 3200m relay in 1983...).Is it true Rick Merk and Tom Thompson never won an individual GCL Title in the mile or 2 mile? Seems a bit hard to believe.
