Tee to Thai

high-flying Jeev Milkha Singh set himself up for his round yesterday by enjoying some Thai food and watching the movie 'Alien 3' on Thursday night.

"I've been going into town and I've been having the Thai food the last two nights. I think it's fantastic," he said.

Jeev's dad, Milkha Singh, ran in and won the 440 yards at Santry Stadium, Dublin, in 1958.

That was the famous evening in which Herb Elliott broke the mile record and the first five, including 1956 Olympic Gold medallist Ronnie Delany, all finished inside the four-minute mark.
