I expect it to be under that in London. The guys go through the 500 in about 32s, on their way to 1km. World record in the standing 1km is now under 1 min.
Well, I do remember that I did the one mile run in 7 min and 31 sec., which was ahead of some other students. That was in high school.
In Jr. High, I could run the 100 yard dash (that was the distance they used back then) in 12.9 seconds.
