  • Up-To-Date U.S. Lists Posted

    U.S. 40-deeps through London GP last Friday now posted. Those should remain very stable for the next few weeks with the Euro Circuit shut down. All amendments greatfully received of course.

    How does TFN treat extended college seasons when the athletes turn pro and have no collegiate affiliation? Carter is still listed as ** instead of Nike.

    Will Gatlin have an asterix until this clears?

      Christian Smith should be #2 on the 800 with his 1:44.86, not the 1:45 listed (apparently a typo, as he's never run time in the 1:45's).

        US Lists

        Mario Macias in the 10K is foreign and should be removed. He has Mexican citizenship and has stated he wants to compete for Mexicio in international competitions.

          Macias attended high school, junior college and college in the USA. Are you sure he:s not a dual citizen?

            I'm glad to see I'm not the only Word Person who gets his homonyms mixed up!

            P.S. The lists already need amending:

            100 METERS 9.77 Justin Gatlin (Nik) Doha GP 05/12

            :-(

                They're waiting for the National Masters Championships to be done, so they can fill in the rest of the top ten in those events!

                    That's why gh has asked for corrections--mistakes happen when putting together lists like this. Listing Powell's 9.86 was an error, but they correctly didn't list his wind-aided time.

                      For ease of the general public's following of the sport our policy has always (always, as in 50 years worth of list-keeping) been that anybody who is a collegian during the outdoor season keeps that affiliation for the whole year.

                        It's our understanding (could be wrong!) that he's a dual citizen. If so, and he has never actually represented Mexico internationally, then he remains on the U.S. list until he makes himself ineligible (by IAAF standards) by representing Mexico. We ignore people saying what they plan on doing down the road, because it doesn't always come to fruition.

                          Note that Gatlin still appears atop the IAAF and USATF lists as well. The mere existence of A&B positives is not enough for either of those bodies to effect a sanction. There's still the hearing stage.

                          When he is finished with that little project his marks (one suspects) will indeed get the old heave-ho. Until then, he's as "innocent" as anyone else in the statistical sense.

                            The whole calendar year, including XC in the fall and indoors in the early winter, or just through the track season (September?)?

                              But wouldn't you agree that the sport has changed drastically, especially in recent years, with so many collegians turning pro early? It seems silly to credit Xavier Carter with the "extended-season" Collegiate Record in the 200 when he announced to the public after this year's NCs that he was turning professional.
