 GH Online News » Hackett smashes Thorpe’s 800m record   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Former distance rival Kieren Perkins held both the 800m and 1500m records, and Thorpe’s primary turf was always the 200m and 400m.
The Queenslander had already gone under the 800m world record twice during 2001 but the problem was Thorpe was typically just ahead on both occasions, firstly in Hobart and then Fukuoka, Japan.
Hackett can expect to hold the 800m record for quite some time, especially as Thorpe, still the holder of the world 200m and 400m records, indicated he would not try to reclaim it as he concentrates on the shorter distances.
