The mile run has never been an Olympic event. The closest event to a mile is the 1500 meter run (1500 meters is .93 miles). As of the 2008 Games, the men's Olympic record is 3:32.07 held by Noah Ngeny of Kenya at the 2000 Games in Sydney. The women's Olympic record is 3:53.96 held by Paula Ivan of Romania at the 1988 Games in Seoul.
