Forget that I said anything about transplanted Europeans, because for some people, that will be the focus, not the original salient point. Discussions of race are so damn boring by this point.
        I think they were a lot down under 1.609. 😂😂😂

        I saw Dixie race once.

            All the best to the 2022 Kiwi fortunes. My wacky sense of humor.

              In 1966...Time..

              Finally there was Sin Kim Dan, a delicate little North Korean lass who broke the women's records at both 400 meters and 800 meters two years ago; some time later, an overjoyed elderly gentleman in South Korea recognized Sin as the son he had lost in the war.
              🤔

              Are there actual videoclips to Shin's 1:58.0 and 51.2 (51.0?), or any other performance? There's a performance of 51.9 from Pyongyang in 1962 officially in the books.

                I saw that ....it also doesn't mean anything at all. Stella Walsh has the first IAAF 100 record.

                  I'm looking forward to the women's pole vault. Will Katie Nageotte go 5 meters or over? Will Sandi Morris win a major world outdoor championship? Will any woman break Isinbayeva's world record? These are the questions the answers to look forward to in 2022.

                    I agree.

                      Seeing that Sidorova cleared 5.01 this year, you probably should include her in your expectations.

                        OK. Will Sidorova be the one to break Isinbayeva's world record? It would be interesting to see how Isinbayeva reacts to her world record being broken, if it is broken, especially by a fellow Russian.

                          No matter the nationality of the record breaker, I doubt her reaction would be interesting. Instead, I anticipate she would dismiss it as an inferior performance by an inferior vaulter, who is obviously an inferior human being. Further, she would point out that she could have easily exceeded it with the latest shoes, poles, etc. We would all regret that we wasted our time listening to more of her nonsense.

                            Maybe, since Isinbayeva loves her country Russia, she would congratulate Sidorova if she does break the world record, with relief that if the record is broken at least a Russian did it.

                              You may be right, but it has always seemed to me that Isinbayeva loves one thing more than Mother Russia, anyone, or anything: Isinbayeva.
