  • Women's world records to be broken

    Which women's record will be broken first. Choices are FloJo's 10.49(100),FloJo's 21,34(200), Marita Koch's 47.60(400),1:53.28(800), or the East German's 4x100(41.37)

    800, then 400R, then 200, then 100, but it will take over 25 years bare minimum for them all to fall, maybe longer. It might take that long for 1 of them to fall. But I'll say 800 will fall first in.... 13 years from now.

      Let me modify the question . . . which will happen first - any of those records being broken or the Red Sox winning a world series

      agreed, the 800 is probably the weakest, for what its worth . . . but man those marks are pretty far out there

        Records will begin falling the day after 197hjsteve breaks his P.R........

          I think the women's 4x1 is BY FAR the weakest of those marks. Heck, we ran 41.47 in 97! Yes, that was with a 10.6-10.7 Marion Jones, but I think you could see a group get down to that again sometime in the next five years or less.

          What about the women's 4x4 WR? With our young 400 and 400h talent, could we run 3:14-3:15 in the next few years? 48.5 per leg?

              The womens 800 record will go by the end of the decade (2010) by an American woman. An the winner will have a good shot at our mens 1500 title in the same year. (LOL)

                197hjsteve - quit typing and get to the track - I hear the Rocky music softly playing in the background.

                  el supremo, what I need to do is to quit typing and get back to work ! But that's no fun.

                  And I agree, the 440 R is "less hard" than the 800.

                  3 magic passes, 2 or 3 sprinters in the Jones/Devers mold, and that record could fall.

                    Flo Jo's 100 won't be broken in my lifetime cuz it ain't a legit mark to begin with.

                      According to the mercier scoring tables, a 41.37 relay is "worth" the following:

                      100: 10.78
                      200: 21.90
                      400: 48.95
                      800: 1:54.37

                      So, yes it is the weakest of those WRs.

                      The toughest of those WRs in the 100m. On the mercier tables, it is worth the following:

                      200: 21.25
                      400: 47.29
                      800: 1:50.46
                      4x1: 40.11


                      If I had to guess, I'd say the relay record will go first, then the 800, 400, 200, and 100. But the latter records won't happen for a LONG time!

                        as to Flo Jo's 10.49, I mentioned this about a month ago....and I was there that day in Indy.

                        If you say it is " not legit" due to the very suspicious 0.0 mps wind, that's one thing, if you say it is " not legit" for that possible "other" reason, I cannot address that.

                        But back to the wind issue, do not forget she had a 10.61 ( I think that's it) that same afternoon that was fully legal, and would be the world record today if not for the 10.49.

                          When US runners get through whatever barrier that seems to have them stuck on 50.5 for past however many years it is then maybe.

                            All of those records will be hard to break. I think the women's 4x100 will be the first to be broken. I'M not so sure about that 800 record ,that woman looked bigger than some runningbacks I've tackled. Our women could break that 4x100 if they had Marion and spent alot of time working on passing the baton. Watch out in 2004 Marion,Kelli White,Chryste Gaines, and ? Could it be Allison Felix on the 3rd leg? Don't Angela Williams and Torri Edwards. The wildcard is Sanya Richards. She can run a good curve.
