  • The Islamic Solidarity Games are on this week in Konya, Turkey: https://konya2021.com/

    Some results of substance:

    M100m
    Final (+1.7): Cisse (CIV) 9.89, Mohammed (KSA) 9.95, Al Ahrthi (OMA) 9.99, Barnes (Tur) 9.99
    Semis (nwi): Cisse (CIV) 9.91, Mohammed (KSA) 9.96, Taftian (IRN) 10.05

    M400mH
    Hemeida (QAT) 48.67, Copello (TUR) 48.86

    W100m
    Odiong (BRN) 11.03 (nwi)

    Konya is reported 1,016m above sea level, so presumably these results have an "A"

      Google says the city's elevation (altitude is a misnomer) is 1027m, so unless the stadium is in a geographic depression, yup, it's an 'a'.

        On one hand:

        altitude
        1. The absolute height of a location, usually measured from sea level.
        Source: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/altitude

        On the other hand:

        Although the term altitude is commonly used to mean the height above sea level of a location, in geography the term elevation is often preferred for this usage.
        Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Altitude

        Some advice:

          Unlike Cali, which was in a relatively steep river valley and "the city" was over 100m but the actual stadium was not, Konya is located in a much gentler sloping valley.

          I usually calibrate online elevation charts against the airport which is accurately measured for aviation purposes. The airport, KYA, has an elevation of 1,031 and the online elevation chart I used showed the airport at 1025, so ~6m difference. The actual site of the track is west of the airport just before the steepening rise out of the valley where the highest parts of the outskirts sit at 1150m.

          The elevation for the venue shows as 1035, so ~1029m, basically the same as the city centre which shows as 1032/~1026. The eastern outskirts of the city do go below 1000m but the majority of the city seems to be around the 1030 mark except for a few small hills and the rise to the west mentioned above.

          The venue is the Konya Atletizm Kompleksi and there's a map at the venue link on the Games website https://konya2021.com/Default.aspx

          A nice aerial photo of the track is at https://rayhaber.com/wp-content/uplo...si-Yapildi.jpg

            • In general conversation, it doesn't really matter but there is a reason why the pilot on your plane talks over the PA about altitude not elevation and Wikipedia lists airports' elevation, not altitude.

              In aviation, the primary difference is that altitude relates to an object like a plane whereas elevation relates to a land based point or area like an airport.

              Aviation has a number of different altitudes https://aerocorner.com/blog/agl-msl-types-of-altitude/ so the altitude of a landed plane may, or may not equal the airport's elevation.

              Likewise, elevation is not a single thing as it is defined as the difference in vertical distance from a specified datum (the point from which you start measuring). There are multiple datum standards that people choose depending on the purpose for which it's being used. Sea level is just one datum but, of course, very popular. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vertical_datum

              For maps, there's plenty of choice! Here's a list for one particular piece of software: https://www.eye4software.com/hydroma...d-map-datums//

              I clearly spent too much time working with a former heavy user of GIS software.

              • Cisse's 9"89 are quite impressive, altitude or not.
                His last PB was 9"92 few years ago.
                I've been talking to him two or three times these last years.
                I remember he told me (he is often injured) it's hard to find a good window when you are 100% fit and healthy, and to constantly have to overcome these physical problems.
                Here, we also like to try to know what is behind a poor performance by any elite athlete, like Coleman's 10"17 recently.

                  Guyana, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Cameroon, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Gambia and Uganda would all appear to be candidate countries...

                      Arshad Nadeem (PAK) as identified By AS earlier https://forum.trackandfieldnews.com/...32#post1767932

                      84.62 for 5th Tokyo OG, 86.16 for 5th at Eugene WC and 90.18 for gold at Birmingham CWG. He finished 3rd with 76.33 at the last Islamic Solidarity Games in Baku, Azerbaijan in 2017.

                        • If you want to see the detailed results from the Konya, Turkey meet - go to the Wikipedia page for Athletics at the Islamic Solidarity Games 2022, and the external references list the daily results as pdf files - 2 each day, 1 for women, 1 for men

                              Ha, I forgot they were in the Small States of Europe Championships as well. I was thinking it's a little too big to be "Small".

                                Makes sense.
