Five years ago today, Alan Webb shattered the U.S. record in the Mile, running 3:46.91 to shatter Steve Scott's mark that stood for 25 years. We return to the site of the race, Brasschaat, Belgium, to relive that special moment in American track & field history.

Watch the race below to see this piece of American Distance Running history that was captured by Flotrack in Brasschaat.
