    He threw aprrox 245'(feet I presume), which measures 74.68m!!!(74.676m rounded-up)
    That's 0.60m(0.596m rounded-up) further than the current World Record of 74.08m.

    At this what at the age of 47!!!

      What was the last race Edwin Moses ran? Was it the Oly final in 1988 or did he run after that? I think his comeback attempt is cool and it would be interesting to know what kind of training plan he has to get to where he wants to go. My guess would be that he will still be self coached. Anyone know anything about these questions?

        Yes, the Oly final in '88 was Moses' last race.
