Hicham el Guerrouj holds the record for the mile (3:43.13), which is 9 meters longer than 1600m. i am not sure who holds it for the 1600m. it's not considered an event in the elite Track and Field world, so it will probably be tough to find any sign of a world record for it.
Usain Bolt holds the record with a 19.30 in Beijing!
As of 2011, Javier Sotomayor holds the mens world record at 2.45 meters. Stefka Kostadinova holds the womens world record at 2.09 meters.
i seriously don't know
Jonathan Edwards of Great Britain holds the men's record at 18.29 meters (60 feet).
