    Again I am just comparing their times beebee. That's all I've done.
    You are the one making all the other comparisons and arguing against no one.

      It's just a sporting debate Jack...

        Lewis did not run 200 in 1983 WC's; IIRC the race where he "clowned the last 50 meters" was TAC championships

          Correct. I remember watching it on British TV. I think they showed some meet highlights.

              He now joins Carl Lewis as the only sub-10, sub-20, and 27ft+ athletes.

              Where does he go from here?
              I wouldn't be surprised if he runs 19.8x this year, and a 100m about 9.95.
              However, I would really like him to run a serious 400m or two, and see where he ends up on the all-time 100m/200m/400m list.

                With his new PBs in the 100 & 200m, he looks to already be at number 14 (if you use his indoor PB of 45.51).

                  Yeah, but the blond kid is unlikely to be getting any PED help.

                    I have him at =25, not 14, with 3591 points; =13 U.S. (with Jon Drummond)

                      His 400m PB is 45.51 from indoors not outdoors, which gives him more points

                      From what I see points wise: 45.51 indoors ~= 44.61 outdoors

Obviously being young he could shock us all at anytime and unleash something ...wow!!!! changing everything.
                        Yeah wasnt Anthuan Maybank jumping around 27'?

                          You should have kept reading. Your reply is three months late.

                          • Honestly, when I saw his races against Terrance Laird last year, we could see there was a huge difference of level between them. Terrance was so brilliant then.

                              To be fair, there was a huge difference between Terrence's level and everyone else's, not just Boling. But Boling looks much improved in the early outdoor races this year compared to last year.
