Continuity mistake: In the final lap of the race with Pre vs. Frank Shorter the two runners round the last lap with Shorter leading the race. At first Shorter is leading in lane 1 with Pre following directly behind. Then Pre is suddenly in lane 2. For the final straight away, Shorter is now in lane 2 and Pre in lane 3. (Also a factual error as no runner leading a race would ever run in any lane other than the first which is the shortest distance). (01:36:00)
Bill Bowerman: For the time being, let's not have you working out with the team. You'll be facing Viren all over again at the Montreal Olympics. I don't want you racing anyone now. I just want you running. You have to explore the limits of the one competitor above everyone else you've always loved to face... Steve Prefontaine.
