    Re: Recognizing opening relay splits for 400

    Also, how about the Czech Kocembov√°'s 48.93 leadoff in Helsinki '83. She smoked Germany's leadoff leg by almost 2 seconds (the Germans won that race). It's too bad they had a 52 and 51 leg in the middle, not even Marita Koch's blazing 47.75 anchor could catch the Germans.

    There usually is, it depends on the number of turns it's staggered. I think maybe there should be a separate official "list" of top leadoffs, but I don't necessarily think they should be incorporated into the normal all-time 400m list, especially since often the splits are not taken/recorded in FAT.

    I don't know that the start for the open 400m and the start for the 4x400m relay are the same. I think that there was a slight difference in the staggered starting lines.

    I think it's probably Danny Everett's 44.0 leadoff in Seoul '88.

    Recognizing opening relay splits for 400

    Curious whether people think it would be a good idea to recognize times made on the opening leg of a 4x400. Individual World records can be set in swimming by athletes competing on the opening leg of a relay. Some great opening relay splits, like Gwen Torrence's 49.0 in the World Championships of '93, don't appear on all-time 400 lists and why should they not? BTW, what's the fastest opening split ever by a man?
