Can anyone tell me anything regarding the track times for the 1500m in the olympics between 1949 and 2006?

Well, let's see. Since you've selected 1949 as your starting point, this would preclude the '48 London Olympic games.

1952 - Josey Barthel of Luxemboug won in 3:45.1

1956 - Ron Delany of Ireland won in 3:41.2

1960 - Herb Elliot of Australia won in 3:35.6

1964 - Peter Snell of New Zealand won in 3:38.1

1968 - Kip Keino of Kenya won in 3:34.9

1972 - Pekka Vasala of Finland won in 3:36.3

1976 - John Walker of New Zealand won in 3:39.17

1980 - Sebastian Coe of Great Britain won in 3:38.40

1984 - Sebastian Coe of Great Britain won in 3:32.52

1988 - Peter Rono of Kenya won in 3.35.96

1992 - Fermin Cacho of Spain won in 3.40.12

1996 - Noureddine Morceli of Algeria won in 3.35.78

2000 - Noah Ngeny of Kenya won in 3.32.07

2004 - Hicham El Guerrouj of Morocco won in 3.34.18

So, what we can say is:

The times improved from 3:45.1 to 3:32.07, well off the current world record of 3:26.0

One World record was set by Herb Elliot 3:35.6

The fastest winning time was 3:32.07 by Kenya's Ngeny.

Most of the races were tactical in nature, thus most of the times were well off the the WR or the athletes's PRs. (Especially in 1976, 1980 & 1992)

Kenya has won 3 golds, Great Britian and Australia has 2 each.

Europe has produced 6 winners, Africa has 5, and Australia/NZ has 3.

Is curling 70lbs. with one arm good, or am I not that strong?

They got much faster. Henry Eriksson ran 3:49. Hicham El Guerrouk won in 2004 with 3:34, Noah Ngeny has the record, set in 2000, of 3:32.07. Only Sebastian Coe won twice (3:32.53)
