On July 21, 2007, Alan Webb broke Steve Scott’s 25-year-old American record in the mile, running a 3:46.91 with help from a few pacers at a small meet in Brasschaat, Belgium. As of 2016, Webb’s time is the eighth-fastest time in history while Scott’s 3:47.69 from 1982 remains the No. 13 time on the all-time list.
