  • Also at the Oregon Relays, Olin Hacker ran 13:19 without being in the slipstream of a lot of pro runners, and finished with a 2:00.0 last 800 with no company (putting away Anderson,
    Bienenfeld and Mwaura by about ten seconds over the last three laps). He is the son of Tim Hacker, so was no slouch in the 1980s and 1990s. Indoors he was a close fourth and actually had the second fastest run in just 0.12 slower than Nur - and did not get mentions in the T&FNews race review. The last ranking for outdoors did not have him in the top ten, I don't think.

      That's a very elite club!
      I think Leroy Burrell had at least a wind aided 27’ jump.apparently he never had a legal sub 20 though.

        How about 8m+ ?

        • I think Andrew Howe from Italy has gone sub-10, sub-20 and over 27 feet.

          nevermind. Just checked iaaf and he’s not even close πŸ˜‚

            I noticed something watching Boling's race. The American flags near the start and the shirts of people in the stands are showing what, given the wind reading of the race, must be a large but nearly perpendicular crosswind. You can hear it in the mic. How much can those help in the 200m?
            Ofili's sub 22 also shows a crosswind, compare the blue and white pennants behind the curve to pennants in the infield.
            I forget where I learned it, maybe Cub Scouts, but to estimate a wind speed, take the angle the flag makes with the pole in degrees and divide by 4 to get mph. So if the angle is 80 degrees, the estimate would be 20mph. In non-Freedom Units, that's like ~10m/s. Seems like it could help a bit! Still a legal wind with current rules and practices.

                What's going on with Maria Michta-Coffey?
                She's the AR holder at 20K, but hasn't performed near that level for awhile now, and today walked over 13 minutes slower than her PR!

                ADD: Checked results again, and now her time is faster by about 5 minutes!
                Was the slower time just a preliminary result, later revised?
                I was sure I saw it as 1:44 and change!

                But even at 1:39, she still far off her best!

                  She's also a couple of months from her 36th birthday.

                      I know!
                      But then, Robyn Stevens is almost 39, and her fastest section of 20K during her 35K at Dudince was 1:34:27 (from 8K to 27K)--faster than Melville--even though she was going 15K longer!!
                      And of course, faster than Maria as well!!
                      LOL

                          I have to disagree. Justin Gatlin was so fast he stopped running the hurdles. That is too fast!

                            You can see the flag as a crosswind in relation to the curve but not the straight away. It is clearly a headwind down the stretch.

                                Nah, he stopped for the same reason Carl Lewis did (and Carol did not) - he found out he could win without the hurdles and that was that - no need to deal with the vicissitudes of the barriers.
