Bedford danced that magic line between increadible fitness and painful injuries throughout his career. On June 11, 1973, David Bedford set the World record for the 10,000 meters, running 27:30.8. In that race, Bedford had surpassed the WR of his hero, Ron Clarke, the former WR holder and the current world record of one Lasse Viren.
